Many thanks for taking the time to get in touch.
I appreciate that study space is always in high demand, however, the furniture in Martyrs Kirk was specifically purchased to be in keeping with the overall aesthetic and it is not easy to add to from our existing furniture pool. This is something that we will bear in mind for the future.
Regarding the availability of hot drinks, in order to minimise spillages and damage, we do not recommend that food or hot drinks are taken in to the reading room at all, therefore, adding an hot water tap to the facility would contradict our current policy.
