Hull History Centre archives to reopen

Hull History Centre’s archives are set to reopen this week, on Wednesday 5 August, following a period of closure due to Covid-19.

The History Centre, which houses city and University of Hull archives, as well as the local studies library, has been open for a select and collect library book service since Wednesday 28 July.

Councillor Marjorie Brabazon, chair of Hull Culture and Leisure, said:

“The History Centre archives are an important resource for many people in the city so I’m delighted that we will be able to reopen them this week.

“As always, we ask users to listen carefully to staff and guidance when visiting the History Centre and follow the important procedures that are in place.”

Councillor John Fareham, chairman of the History Centre Board, added:

“Staff have worked tirelessly to create an environment that can welcome visitors back to the History Centre.

“This has been done alongside also ensuring that the centre has offered an online service during the pandemic.

“As chairman of the History Centre Board, I thank them for their efforts and look forward to seeing users return to the centre.”

The History Centre is operating with social distancing measures in place, in accordance with Public Health England guidance.

Facilities will be accessible via appointment only, and visitors will be required to wear face masks.

The History Centre will be open 10am-12pm and 2pm-4pm.
