Palmet HallOver the next month or so you will notice refurbishment works happening in the Library’s Palmer Hall (between the foyer and Mr Tulk cafe, outside Readings bookshop). We are building a more comfortable space for visitors to hang out, check email and have a break.

The makeover of Palmer Hall is one part of a bigger project we are undertaking to make the Library more comfortable and useful for all visitors.

From early April you’ll be able to enjoy:

  • Comfy seating
  • Improved wi-fi
  • A free exhibition Writing the war
  • Pop-up events and programming

Where have the lockers gone? Free lockers for Library visitors are available underneath the left-hand staircase to Queen’s Hall, off the main foyer. Ask our friendly Library staff to point them out.

After April, Palmer Hall will be open during standard Library hours: 10am–9pm Monday to Thursday, and 10am–6pm Friday to Sunday.

Restrooms will be accessible via Mr Tulk during the cafe’s normal opening hours.
