Reopening of Cultural Heritage Services
Published 28 May 2021

Following the recent reopening of branch libraries for browsing and access for study space, we are delighted to be reintroducing access to our Cultural Heritage services on Wednesday 2 June.

Cultural Heritage resources will be available in Belfast Central (including the Newspaper Library), Derry Central, Downpatrick, Enniskillen, Newry City and Omagh libraries by appointment only.

To ensure customers can visit in a safe and comfortable manner, the number of appointments available per day is limited. Two bookable sessions will be on offer each day from 10:00am to 12 noon and 2:00pm to 4:00pm.
We are kindly asking customers who wish to visit between Wednesday 2 and Saturday 12 June, to telephone or email the relevant Cultural Heritage location from Tuesday 1 June onwards to make an appointment. Thereafter, bookings can be made one week in advance by contacting your preferred Cultural Heritage location.
To accommodate as many customers wishing to visit as possible, places are limited to one appointment per customer per week, and will be allocated on a first come first serve basis. At the time of booking, staff members will ask you to provide contact details to confirm your appointment.
To make your visit as enjoyable as possible and to make sure the resources you would like to view are available and readily accessible during your appointment, customers are asked to please request microfilm and other Cultural Heritage resources in advance.

We look forward to welcoming you back and thank you for your patience and cooperation.
