Welcome to the library, a beautiful space to study. You will find our library on the second floor of the main house at Wentworth Castle.  

The library is always staffed during opening hours and can help you find the resources you need to succeed in your studies. We offer a range of curriculum related resources, including text and e-books, online and subscription journals, and additional learning resources. We also offer the use of computers, printers, scanners, a study area for you to work in with charging points, a collection of DVDs, and a swap shop donations bookshelf.

Our library staff are here to help with all aspects of your studies, including finding resources, academic skills, IT support, borrowing equipment, learning to proofread, learning to reference. 

Our library is a beautiful place to study, and we are here to support all our students.
