Opening Times

The Orkney Library and Archive re-opened to the public on Monday 17th August 2020 
with some restrictions. Every person intending to
research at the Archive must book a time slot before visiting

Archive Reception in the Searchroom

Time slots will last for 50 minutes and start on the hour. Consecutive slots may be available if you need more time. You will be allocated a table in the Searchroom or the Orkney Room depending on your needs. If you just need a microfilm reader, these are bookable too. 
Contact the Archive Staff by email or phone to book your slot.
