The library welcomes visitors to use the Local Studies and Archives collections for study and research.

We are open as normal to the general public, although you are advised to phone up and check opening hours as these can be affected by circumstances beyond our control.

Researchers can still make an appointment in advance of their visit.

To make an appointment, please contact the library by email or telephone to book a session.

Requests for items from the collections required for use on your visit made in advance will enable library staff to have the items ready for your visit.

Please note that we require at least 72 hours’ notice for Archives.

On booking your appointment via telephone or email, our team of library staff will help to search the catalogues to identify appropriate items as required.

Arrangements for disabled visitors

Please let us know when booking if you have any special requirements.
