I was in Oxford for a conference so I thought I’d find the time to visit Oxford Central Library. However, it turned out that the library is currently housed in temporary accommodation while the Westgate Shopping Centre is redeveloped: Temporary new home for Oxford Central Library. When the library can reopen at its shopping centre site in October 2017 it will have a new façade.
In the meantime the Library is based in the Castle Quarter and is making the most of its facility. It’s actually a really nice large room and they’ve packed in as much stock as possible.
There is also a small children’s corner.
I will have to find time to go back to Oxford when the new library is finished.
