Thank you for completing a "You said, We did" card recently. I'm really pleased that you appreciate Martyr's Kirk, and find it an ideal study environment - exactly what the University intended when it created the space.
We would love to open Martyrs for longer periods of time, and whilst at times there are no staff working in Martyrs, staff in other parts of the Library are responsible for the safe operation of this area. To increase opening times we would also need to increase the staff working during that time to ensure we had sufficient staff to respond to any situation that might arise.
There are no immediate plans to increase the opening times of Martyrs. However the Library does listen to the feedback we receive, and recently increased the Main Library opening hours in response to student demand. So whilst we have no immediate plans we will take your request into consideration as we look at how we can improve services.
Thanks again for your suggestion.
