New Wednesday Opening Hours
From Wednesday 12th November, the Wednesday library opening hours are changing from 2pm-8pm to 1pm-7pm.
As the days are longer (and colder!), we feel that library users will benefit from the library being open an extra hour during the afternoon.

Sarah Pickstone Presents Park Notes – Writing and Painting inspired by Regent’s Park
Wednesday 19th November at 7pm
Award-winning painter Sarah Pickstone was intrigued by the writers associated with Regent's Park - those who wrote in it, about it, or were simply inspired by it, and her work explores these serendipitous connections between people, places, and ideas. The anthology of Park Notes combines Pickstone's radiant paintings alongside the work of fellow contemporary artists, evocative extracts from writers of the past, and essays and stories from today's most engaging authors. The result is a captivating and distinctive collection, celebrating the creative process and the glorious natural spaces in the heart of London.
The talk is taking place in the library, and tickets cost £2 on the door.
