The new library will be opening on the 31 January 2022
The Newnham library will still be open going forward. As we prepare to move some of the collection to Inveresk, there will be some time when there is limited or no access to the Newnham library:-
Level 1 will be available as a study space during this time, and books can be retrieved from Level 2 on request.
You can borrow books during the period of the move. The books that are moving to Inveresk won't be able to be borrowed while they are being packed up to move, but that doesn't mean you won't be able to get access to what you need.
We will have something in place closer to the time of the closure. Please check back here later in the year.
There are around 37,000 books being moved into the new Inveresk library. They are across all subject areas. (More to come!)
The AMC collection, and the majority of the Newnham collection, will remain in place at Newnham.
We will have Reserve collections in both Newnham and Inveresk. Required texts will be available in both locations.
Yes you can. You can request the item and ask for the 'pick up' location to be Newnham. More information is available on the How to Request tab
You will still be able to return your books even while the collection is being moved and the Newnham library closed. Just pop them in the returns chute just near the front doors outside of the Newham Library. Don't worry if you can't get in though, we'll be extending all the loan periods until after the Inveresk library opens
