Wellcome Library on the move Summer 2004

Closure bulletin

This is to advise that our previously advertised summer closure dates are no longer valid. Please see below for revised dates. We do not envisage any further changes to our move schedule, but intending visitors are strongly advised to contact us before making travel plans.

Late-summer closure dates: 28 August to 12 September 2004, inclusive: The Library’s current accommodation at 183 Euston Road, London is to be upgraded and expanded. While the refurbishment is being carried out, our services and collections will relocate to 210 Euston Road from August 2004 until Spring 2006.

To facilitate the move, we anticipate that the Library will close to the public in late summer 2004, from Saturday 28 August to Sunday 12 September inclusive. As with all construction programmes, the dates may be subject to change. Intending visitors are urged to contact our Enquiry Line on +44 (0) 20 7611 8722 before making any firm travel arrangements.

We hope to make the move as smooth as possible for our users and apologize in advance for any inconvenience. For regular updates about the progress of the move and the refurbishment, please check the ‘News page’ on the Library website at <http://library.wellcome.ac.uk/>
