Opening hours in the National Library of Scotland's George IV Bridge Building in Edinburgh are changing.
From Monday 2 July, hours for the reading rooms, exhibitions, café and shop will all be the same. The building will close earlier in the evenings and fully close on Sundays, while the reading room opening hours on Saturdays are to be extended.
These revisions reflect the changing needs of the Library's visitors and readers. Reading room users said through a recent visitor survey, for example, that they would use the Library more if Saturday opening hours were longer. One of the changes is in direct response to this need.
The new opening hours will be:
- Monday, Tuesday, Thursday: 09.30-19.00
- Wednesday: 10.00-19.00
- Friday, Saturday: 09.30-17.00
- Sunday: Closed.
