When you’re in the Library, please practice physical distancing and use cashless payment options.

Checking in via the Check In CBR app is no longer mandatory, but we will continue to display QR codes for voluntary use for visitors.

The Library has taken active steps to review and adjust the air conditioning system to maximise the intake of fresh air.

All hard surfaces in the Library are cleaned daily and high touch points will be cleaned throughout the day.

There are also hand hygiene facilities available at the entrance to the Library, the Reading Rooms and in other key locations. Sanitising wipes are also available for the public to use in the locker areas and in the Reading Rooms.

We're always open online
