From Tues 1 June, the paternoster will run Mon-Fri 10am-4.30pm. You can check the current hours of operation on our Opening Hours page.
There will be a safety announcement as it starts up and is closed down each day to let you know what is happening.
If you just want to ride the paternoster, you'll be asked to check in on arrival at the Library as part of our COVID-19 arrangements.
Here's everything you need to know to ride the paternoster safely!

If you would rather not use the paternoster to travel up and down in the Library, a conventional lift and stairs are also available.
