The Forum Library is open 24/7 throughout the vacation. Hundreds of students and staff will use the library every day. Our borrowing rules continue as usual during vacation, with the addition of a short pause (23rd Dec – 3rd Jan) on recalls and returns. You can check Opening Times for all libraries online.
