The Library and Knowledge Service is due to be refurbished between the 17th and 24th of February inclusive. The Service will be closed between these dates, and no items will be due back during the weeks beginning 15th February and 22nd February.

Note that you can borrow extra items during this time, which will help the move as it means fewer items of stock will need to be stored and moved.
