 New Inveresk Library - opening January 2022

Everything is on track for the opening of our newest library on the Inveresk Precinct in January 2022.  The Library will be in the heart of the Inveresk Precinct, located between The Annexe and the School of Creative Arts.

In readiness for the new library, we are preparing books to move from the Newnham campus. You might see some labels on books that say 'Inveresk'. These books will be packed up in December and moved to the new library. There will be a few weeks that these books won't be available but don't worry, we will do everything we can to make sure we provide access to anything you need during that time. As the time gets closer we'll be updating this page with more information, so keep checking in and check out our Inveresk FAQ page for more details
