If you want to book in for a larger group and want a guided tour, please send an email to arrange this prior to your booking: 

When you come, you will be welcomed by one of our friendly door staff and given an introduction to the Library and to the current exhibition.

Please be aware that due to the nature of this historic building we regret that the galleries of the Library are not accessible to wheelchairs.  We can provide access to the ground floor facilities, shop and garden on request.

We will always assist with lifting buggies or prams up the steps and stairs, if you ring the library on (01) 4543511. Children are always very welcome in the Library.

If you would prefer to come without a booking, you can also pay at the door on the day.
