Additional Summer Weekend Opening at Mile End Library

16 June 2018

Feedback from postgraduates, academics, university staff and other users highlighted a gap in library provision – summer vacation opening hours, in particular the long summer weekend closures.

Throughout the whole summer period Mile End Campus offers study areas outside of the library: The Graduate CentreHive West and Canalside.  However, these areas do not provide access to books, DVDs, staff assistance with information resources, help with service, account or other library queries, which our users may have.

We would like to trial additional summer weekend opening and are happy to announce that as a trial we will be opening Mile End Library for an additional 5 weekends over the summer period, matching the Whitechapel summer weekend dates.  There will also be 2 additional weekend openings in early September.

 Essential deep cleaning and maintenance work will be taking place in all of our libraries during the remaining closed weekends.
