Student with books

Over the summer we’ll be refurbishing the Special Collections Reading Room of The John Rylands Library.

The refurbishment will offer improvements to the reader experience together with enhanced security and care of the collections through a redesigned staff workspace.

About the Reading Room

The room, located on the fourth floor of our Deansgate site, is an air conditioned, quiet space where anyone can register to access items from our world class Special Collections.

Christie Room interim arrangement

Exact dates for the start and end of the refurbishment will be confirmed in due course. Whilst the refurbishment is underway, the Reading Room will operate out of the Christie Room - a quiet space in the historic part of The John Rylands Library.  

Services and routes throughout the building may alter at various times during the refurbishment.

Please check the Special Collections Reading Room webpages for any updates ahead of your visit.
