Rooms for Study or Hire

Study rooms are currently unavailable for use. Thank you for your understanding.

We have a range of spaces in our libraries that can be used for study or booked for community activities.

Some of our larger libraries have rooms available for individual or group study. They're free to use.

Library members can book these rooms in advance for up to two hours per day. If nobody else is using them, rooms can also be booked on the spot on a 'first-come, first-served' basis.

Study rooms cannot be used for meetings, paid tutoring or commercial activities.
