Western Bank Library opening hours


Bear with us while we improve your study space!

We’re improving your study space at Western Bank Library! Planned improvements to the reading room include new workstations, 80 with power, and lighting work.

The main reading room will be closed from Monday 19th to Friday 30th September. You will still be able to access the mezzanine level and print materials for most of this time. We'll let you know when access to print material is restricted, but don't worry, you will still have access through the request process.

If you have any immediate queries, please do not hesitate to speak to any member of Library staff or email library@sheffield.ac.uk.

We'll be reporting on progress and looking for your comments on Facebook and Twitter.
