British Library On Demand operating hours, Easter 2021

Boston Spa Reception and Reading Room

Easter is upon us, so most On Demand services will stop from 16.00 on 1 April to when we re-open at 08.00 on 6 April

Published date:

The Easter weekend is a public holiday in the UK, so the British Library’s site in Boston Spa, Yorkshire will be closed. This includes the processing of British Library On Demand orders from our physical collections and third-party suppliers and our Customer Services team. This closure will be reflected in the dispatch dates estimated by our online ordering interface. Please note, due to current restrictions and limited staff, the service may already encounter delays

You will still be able to order items from our electronic stores for immediate download.

If we receive your order after 16:00 BST on Thursday 1 April, we won’t start processing it until we reopen on Tuesday 6 April at 08:00 BST. Any orders that we receive after 16:00 on 1 April will be timed from 08:00 on 6 April.
