Why is Stockwell Street library opening 24/5?

Based on the usage of Stockwell Street library during our previous 24/7 opening periods, we have decided to offer 24/5 opening, which will allow us to offer the service for a longer period. 

The entire Library building will remain open and most services will be available throughout the night. Agency staff and Security staff will be available to provide assistance if required.
