Library & Learning Services
Your 24/7 Library
Access library resources whenever you need them, 24/7 – all floors of Fountains are accessible all year round.
You'll always find all floors of Fountains open 24/7 – even on Christmas Day – to provide you with year-round access to our Library's resources and facilities.
We also offer extensive staffed hours, so help from a member of staff is never far.
