Important Notice: Temporary Closure of the Sir John Ritblat Treasures Gallery
We would like to inform you that the Sir John Ritblat: Treasures of the British Library Gallery will be closed to the public from 14 February until 7 March of 2014 so that essential refurbishment works can be carried out. The gallery will reopen in March with a fresh look; the carpets will be replaced, cases updated, and improved lighting systems installed. The manuscripts currently in the gallery must be taken off display for safekeeping during this three week period, but we are already planning for new items to be shown as soon as the gallery reopens. We’ll bring you any further updates here on the blog as they become available, and look forward to sharing our revamped display area with you soon.
