New way of working


Due to COVID-19 pandemic, the SPR Office and Library are closed to drop-in visitors for the time being, and we are not holding any physical events. We can, however, arrange appointments for visits by SPR members only. Book an appointment at our online booking system HERE.

No more than two visitors at any time will be allowed. Face coverings are required to be worn by visitors during their visit, social distancing rules will apply and protocols will be in place for the handling of books. If you wish to visit us, please contact The Secretary on for an appointment or use the booking system for an appointment. Our priority is, first and foremost, the health of our staff and visitors to the SPR.

Please note that we are holding a series of online Web Events, via Zoom. Also, our Online Bookshop is open.

All library book loans have been automatically extended. Returns may be sent by mail to our address - or posted through our letterbox. (For larger books, please call or email the office in advance.) New loans may be requested by email and these will be sent to you by post.

Mailing of publications to members continues. Telephone lines are still active, and emails are monitored.

We will update on the situation as necessary and we look forward to welcoming members and visitors back to the SPR in the future.

Remember that details of recordings of our past physical events are available for you to access here. Members may see recordings of our Web Events here.
