Q. Where are the lifts?
Colchester: There are 2 lifts in the library. The main lift is behind the paternoster, the entrance can be found to the right next to the central stairs just inside the corridor between the foyer and the Library Reading Room. This lift serves all floors of the library. There is another lift in the north side of the library serving floors 2 -5, this can be accessed by a door half way down on the left hand side of each floor.
(Our paternoster lift is undergoing a programme of refurbishment and should be available again during 2020/21)
