We encourage you to wear a face covering when visiting the Library, especially in busy spaces.
Please do not visit the Library if you are feeling unwell.
You will find hand sanitiser at entry and exit points, and the galleries will be cleaned regularly throughout the day.
During your visit
You can take pictures of the exhibition, providing you don't use flash.
