Once a booking has been submitted and you arrive at the library before your allocated time, you must call the library helpdesk phone number to validate your booking so staff can enable entry into the library. All details are provided at all library entry points.
Fines are suspended until September 2021. 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 Library@Brighton.ac.uk for details.
