To facilitate the installation of a new fire detection system as part of the Berkeley Library Electrical Upgrade Project, a large scaffold will be erected on the first floor in the Morrison Room for a period of two weeks as follows:
Friday 20th Oct – Saturday 4th Nov
The lowered seating area in the Morrison Room will be closed for this entire period. Please note that this will not affect access to any book shelves. Alternative study spaces will be available elsewhere on the first floor and throughout the rest of the building.
Please expect some noise disruption on Friday 20th and Saturday 21st October while the scaffold is being erected.
Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause. Contact Peter Dudley (Sub-Librarian, Reading Rooms Services & Space) if you have any questions or concerns: firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Berkeley/Lecky/Ussher Libraries, including Kinsella Hall. The Hamilton and the John Stearne Medical Library are not affected

The Library will be closed Monday 16th October due to the Status Red wind warning for Ireland issued by Met Eireann. The closure covers all reading rooms and Library buildings, including our 24-hour study areas and Library facilities outside the main campus.
Stay safe! Normal service is expected to resume on Tuesday 17th October.
As part of this year’s Open House Festival, the Berkeley Library – 50 years old this year – is being opened up for public tours from 12:00 to 16:00 on Saturday 14th October. This is a special opportunity to welcome members of the public to experience ‘Ireland’s finest modern building’.
The tours are likely to involve some minor noise disruption, particularly on the upper floors, but every effort will be taken to minimise the impact. Please note that alternative quiet study spaces will be available in the Lecky and Ussher libraries.
