Please note that our cleaning staff operate from 7am until 10am each morning endeavouring to keep the building clean. Note that this means there will be some associated noise whilst this work is undertaken, although we will schedule the noisier work as early as we can. Please assist us by using the bins and recycling facilities available throughout the Library.
