Main floor (Level 2)
The main reading room is open to everybody. This is the large area as you come into the library on Level 2. There are a number of desks by the windows, some of which have Bodleian Reader PCs. Every second row of desks has power sockets. If you need to, you can borrow a powerbank from the Enquiry Desk. The desks and chairs in this area originate from when the library opened in 1964.
