Changes to Central Library & Graves Gallery opening hours

As of 4 August, Sheffield Central Library’s opening hours are changing, including opening  from 1-8pm on Wednesdays instead of 9.30am-8pm.  Full details of the changes are on the Library website here - the library will be monitoring demand for the first few months to make sure the new opening hours provide the best balance for customers.  

As a result the Graves Gallery will open later than usual on Wednesdays throughout August, from 1-4pm. The Gallery will be open as normal Thursday-Saturday.

Increased opening hours at Graves Gallery

We’re pleased to announce that from 1 September we are able to restore Tuesday opening at the Graves Gallery. We are also trialling a slightly later opening time and later closing time, including a 6pm close on Wednesdays, which we hope will better meet the needs of our visitors.

As of 1 September, Graves Gallery opening hours will be:

Mon               closed
Tue                11am-4pm
Wed              1-6pm            
Thu                11am-4pm
Fri                 11am-4pm
Sat                11am-4pm
Sun               closed           

We’d like to know what you think of the new opening hours – you can post comments here or email us at
