The great book move!

As part of the final stages of the refurbishment of the first floor of Sheila Silver Library the books are on the move as they are transferred to their new home on the first floor.

The great book move will start on Thursday 6th October, with different sections moving at a time:

  • Thursday 6th October (G28) Book numbers 350 – 599
  • Monday 10th October (G29) Book numbers 306.4 – 339.99
  • Wednesday 12th October (Ground floor, entrance area) Book numbers 000-306.39

If you’re looking for a book whilst they are being moved the best thing to do is to put a Hold on it. Please ask Library staff for help if you’ve not done this before, take a look at our web page.

Please note that your holds could take slightly longer to arrive than normal as we may have to check a number of trolleys / shelves on a number of floors to find the book! We will also be offering a collection service for urgent items. Please speak to staff at the Help and Information Point about this.

We’ll keep you up to date here with all the developments but you can also follow #librefurb at @BeckettLibrary or take a look at our FAQs on our website.
