The library will remain open for the following official working hours: 10.00 am – 5.00 pm on (Monday to Friday) and 10.00 am – 1.00 pm on Saturdays.

Please note arbitrations do continue late into the evenings on certain days and on Saturdays and Sundays, but there will not be any staff to assist those coming to use the library so we request you to visit only during library opening hours. At present we do not loan out our books or journals. It is a reference library.
