Following the advice of the UK government, and in line with advice from the Director-General of the World Health Organisation, we have, with regret, decided to temporarily close the doors of Conway Hall to safeguard our staff, volunteers, audiences and communities.

During this time we will be continuously monitoring official channels of communication, guidance and instruction. When we know more from these channels we will issue further updates, with a view to re-opening and restarting our programmes as soon as it is safe to do so.

We deeply regret the disruption arising from this unprecedented event.

Conway Hall Library is open to all. Whether you are conducting research, need a space to study, or just wish to enjoy our atmospheric Arts and Crafts style library.

We welcome research and general enquiries via our online enquiry form, telephone or by post and aim to respond within five working days. For your time and convenience, it is advisable to contact the library before your visit so we can ensure the materials you

seek are available. Please consult the collections pages and online catalogue for information about our collections. Unfortunately, due to limited staff capacity, we are unable to answer in-depth research queries.

Members of Conway Hall Ethical Society may borrow books, but we are also open as a reference library to non-members. Free WiFi, access to power sockets and a multi-copier for scanning and copying items are available. Please ask library staff if you wish to photograph our collections.

We are committed to promoting inclusive practice at Conway Hall. Due to the constraints of our historic building there currently is no step-free access to the Library, but we are happy to discuss how we can make our materials accessible to you. We vary the location of library events with ground level rooms, and will use your comments to enable us to develop ways to ensure that everyone is able to attend events in the future. Please contact us for further information about accessing the Library.
