Open with social distancing  

At the opening this autumn, the library's study places will be spread out in order to maintain social distancing. Various measures will also be put in place to help visitors keep their distance and reduce the risk of spreading infection.

We are very happy to welcome all our visitors this fall, but urge those who have any cold symptoms to stay at home until they feel well again.
