The evening gave attendees the opportunity to experience the library’s new facilities and learn more about the challenges overcome in the building process.

The New Library is a large, 8,000sq/ft. subterranean extension built beneath the Provost’s Garden and provides bespoke storage and access for the library’s historic and archive collections as well modern learning spaces. Filled with natural light, the structure is an excellent example of 21st Century architecture and design.

The reading room is the major new addition to the library and provides open space for 36 users. Top lit by the stunning roof light which gives views of the original library and is a clever, yet discrete, design feature of the new Provost’s garden.
