The London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games are being held in the period from 27 July to 9 September in venues in London and around the country. The Media Transport Hub for the Olympic Games (but not the Paralympics) will be based in and around Russell Square. The area will be extremely crowded from 6am until 10am each day.
The Library will be open as usual during the Olympic Games. Our opening hours will be:
Monday – Friday: 09.30 – 20.15
Saturday & Sunday: 11.00 – 17.00
We may need to adjust our hours at short notice, so please check our web site and follow us on Twitter for any last minute changes before visiting the Library. Please check for possible transport disruption on your journey at Transport for London or Get Ahead of the Games websites.
The British Library will have changes to their opening hours during this period. Please see their website for further information.
