Library opening hours
Libraries will be open 9.30–6pm Monday to Friday except for August Bank Holiday on 30 August when they will be closed.
From 1 July you will be able to enter the libraries using your unicard instead of phoning to request access and you should ‘check in’ using the NHS Track and Trace QR code. Face coverings are to be worn when moving around the libraries but can be taken off when you are seated, 2metre social distancing continues to apply. PCs and study spaces are for individual use; study spaces no longer need to be booked and there will be no limits on length of PC bookings with a choice to pre book or book on arrival.
Borrowing can be from any of the four libraries either by coming in and selecting books in person or by reserving from the library catalogue and selecting the site library you want to collect from.
Fines are currently suspended. However please return any items promptly that are not renewed because someone else is waiting to use them. Books can be returned at any of the libraries and there is a freepost returns service if you are unable to return them in person, please contact email@example.com for details.
There are no limits on length of PC bookings with a choice to pre book or book on arrival via the Book a PC tile on My Brighton.
If you do not log in within 15 minutes of your booking it will be cancelled to allow someone else to use the computer.
As well as library computers you can book a computer to use in the following locations:
- Edward Street
- Watts Building Level Two
- Falmer computer room
- Eastbourne computer room
The desks in these areas are suitable for general study as well as computer use and for the use of Microsoft Teams to support remote learning.
