Heating at the Graves Gallery
The heating system in the Central Library building is old and no longer heats much of the Graves Gallery. As tenants, we’re working with Sheffield City Council, who own the building, to explore long term solutions for the problem, but unfortunately the repairs needed require significant investment.
We’re sorry if the gallery is particularly cold during your visit. In some instances where the extreme temperatures mean it becomes too cold for visitors and staff, we sadly have to temporarily close the gallery. In these cases we’ll continue to monitor the situation and work to reopen the gallery as soon as conditions allow.
