If you need to access a library for filming or photography then the following terms and conditions will apply: we aim to ensure a fair and consistent approach so please note that no exceptions will be made.

  • The request form must be submitted at least a week in advance of the date of your intended visit. If your request is approved, you will be directed to designated areas where you can film or take photographs.
  • Filming and photography will not be permitted during busy periods; i.e. between 11:00am - 3:00pm.
  • Notices must be produced and displayed to ensure that Library users are aware of the activity and have an opportunity to find somewhere else to study.
