Mackintosh Library Closure: Update

The Mackintosh Library has been closed for the past few weeks in order to carry out conservation and restoration works on this unique interior as part of the Heritage Lottery Funded Mackintosh Access and Conservation Project.
Now that conservation works are complete we will soon begin the long task of returning thousands of volumes to the Library from storage. In the process we will have to clean all the books before they can be returned to the shelves.
We currently plan to re-open the Mackintosh Library for the beginning of next term, around the 7th April. Although we will do everything we can to have the Library open as quickly as possible, please bear with us during this period.
We'll let you know about the reopening when this important programme of works is complete.
