Staying safe in the library

Staying safe in the library

We want to ensure that everyone using the Sir Alex Ferguson Library feels safe to do so. We would ask for your full support in this by adhering to the following guidelines.


Masks must be worn at all times in the library unless you are medically exempt. They must be worn even when working at your desk. They can be removed when actively eating or drinking, but must be put back on when finished.


Wipes and hand sanitiser will be freely available throughout the floors and we encourage all library patrons to use these when working in the building. Our domestic staff will be conducting an enhanced cleaning regime throughout the day.


While there are no social-distancing rules in place, we ask you to be respectful of the boundaries of other library users. Library staff will be working hard to keep the building safe so please ensure you treat them with the same level of respect.

If you choose not to follow these guidelines then you may be asked to leave the library.

If at any point you feel uncomfortable you can speak to a member of the library team using our chat service on the right hand side of this page.

If you require books but do not wish to enter the main Library floors then please use our Click and Collect service.

We also have a limited number of bookable PCs if you wish to secure a study space in the Library before you arrive.
