Library rules

The Library’s study spaces are open 24/7 to Hertford members only and are often in high demand. As a community we keep this a comfortable working space by:

  • Keeping phones on silent and taking calls outside the building
  • Keeping conversation to a minimum (that’s right – shhhhhhh!)
  • Using keep cups or water bottles for drinks and not bringing food into the Library.
  • Leaving a yellow slip on study desks if taking a short break or removing belongings from desks if leaving the Library for longer. Desks will be cleared by library staff regularly.

Please also help to keep everyone safe in the Library by wearing a face covering (unless exempt) and being considerate of other people's space.
