Library Access: 5 to 9 February 2018

Work on the heating and radiators will be taking place in Sarum College Library during the week of the 5 February.

The radiator pipes are being replaced in the main library room so please expect some disruption.

The Library will remain open but it won’t be possible to study at the desks. There are limited study places in the other two rooms but these will be available on a first come, first served basis. We apologise for the inconvenience.

Transformed! Sarum’s Refurbished Library Now Open

Sarum College Library has been transformed following a refurbishment made possible by a legacy from the late Miss Heather Mathews.

Those of you who knew our well-loved library will know that it was looking a little tired. The carpet was worn, the paint was peeling and the lighting was showing its age.

This refurbishment has seen the main library room completely re-fitted with a new carpet, pale walls, more electrical sockets, new lighting and improved heating. These improvements will make the library an attractive, comfortable space for staff, volunteers and readers.

“It’s such a pleasure to see this long-awaited refurbishment of our library come to fruition,” says Jenny Monds, director of learning resources at Sarum College. “We hope that our readers will have a much more pleasant experience now in the newly decorated, warmer and brighter environment.”

Library Refurbishment This February

033  Sarum College 25thFeb14Sarum College Library will be closed from Monday 2 February to Friday 20 February whilst we carry out an extensive refurbishment.

Those of you who know our well-loved library will know that it is looking a little tired these days. All that will be changed in February as the result of a legacy from Miss Heather Mathews, a member who loved coming to the library and appreciated the personal touches we offer.

These works will see the main library room completely re-fitted with a new carpet, pale walls, more electrical sockets, new lighting and improved heating. These improvements will make the library an attractive, comfortable space for staff, volunteers and readers.

During the refurbishment process there will be no access to the main library room (and the books in it) and we will only be able to lend books that are normally in rooms 2 and 3 (270.8 to 999 in the classification scheme) or which we’ve retrieved in advance.

If you think that you might need any books during February, please send a list of the titles to the library by Friday 30th January. Books from current reading lists will be available in one of the other library rooms and the catalogue and loans system will be working as normal during these three weeks but other services may be limited.
