Extended library opening hours

Dec 15, 2009

The success of the 24/7 opening at Clifford Whitworth in April and May has led to a regular review of library opening hours.

Library and Learning Services have added over 17 term-time hours per week at Clifford Whitworth and Allerton libraries with further exam periods seeing 24/7 opening hours.

On weekdays Clifford Whitworth now opens at 8am and midnight opening
has been extended to include Fridays. Allerton Library now stays open until 10pm on Monday-Thursday.

During these extended opening hours the libraries are self service, which means that - although the Service Desk is closed - books can still be borrowed and returned and the PC suites are still available for use.

Weekend opening has also changed to accommodate students' preferred use patterns. Weekends at Clifford Whitworth and Saturdays at Allerton see the libraries open from 12noon to 6pm.
