somlogo Library Hours of Opening

Please note the special program over the Christmas and New Year Holidays:

The Library will be closed from

  4pm Friday 14th December 2018


 9am Monday 7th January 2019

Regular Program: Monday to Friday 09:00-16:00
The opening hours have been extended as we now have a full time assistant librarian, Charles Phiri who is working along side Dora Wimbush. We are happy with this development and we hope that more visitors and researchers will benefit from the increased access to our books and collections.

Please note, different hours of opening may apply during the holiday periods. Please check the website for any updates on opening times.
