The library will be closed for Christmas from Wednesday, December 23 and will re-open on Monday, January 4.

Staff will not be available to answer queries or to process book requests or returns during this period. Online resources will remain accessible throughout.

Automated overdue reminders for items due prior to December 21 may still send during the Christmas period. You can postpone your returns until the Library re-opens. Likewise, postal delays may mean some returns might not have arrived or been processed before the Christmas break. These will be resolved in January.

We strongly advise programme participants to plan ahead and to submit book requests before Friday, December 18. Requests received after December 18 are unlikely to reach you before Christmas.

Please be advised that Covid health and safety restrictions still apply and you should not travel to the library to borrow books unless you have received confirmation from a staff member that the book you want is available for collection.

Any changes to this schedule will be posted here and to Twitter (@IMILibrary)

Have a happy Christmas!
