Cleaning of Old Bodleian Library stonework

22 March 2010

Essential maintenance and cleaning will be carried out on the stonework of the North side of the Old Bodleian Library, adjacent to the Clarendon Building between March - June 2010. Scaffolding will be erected to the level of the Lower Reading Room to enable this work to take place.

There may be some minor disturbance due to noise during this period. The scaffolding will prevent the opening of windows in the Lower Reading Room on the North face of the building, and may also inhibit natural light.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused to readers by these essential works.
