Changes to opening hours

We’ve recently made 24-hour access available in both our libraries, and we’re shortly making a small change to staffed opening hours.

From the 3rd April, both libraries will be staffed from 8.30am – 5.00pm five days a week.

Outside these hours, eligible members will be able to access the library and IT facilities 24-hours a day, 7-days a week using the swipe card system at Shrewsbury or the keypad system at Telford. We already have a self-service terminal at Shrewsbury so you can borrow and return items out of hours, and we’re installing a new self-service terminal at Telford so you can do the same there.

If you’d like more information about out of hours access, please do get in touch.

  • Gene editing brings pig organ transplant closer
    "Gene editing to remove viruses brings transplant organs from pigs a step closer," The Guardian reports after researchers used the new CRIPSR gene editing technique.
