Located in central Oxford, England, the Weston Library is part of the Bodleian Library, the main research library of the University of Oxford. The library reopened within the former New Bodleian Library on the corner of Broad Street and Parks Road.
The building was opened by King George VI. It was constructed of Bladon stone with Clipsham dressings. The Rockefeller Foundation donated 60% of the £1 million cost for the new building. Today, it includes administrative and reading rooms, and an 11-storey bookstack beneath the building. It is still possible to walk underground between the Radcliffe Camera and the new library building.
The library has been well-received, being described by The Independent newspaper as a “hey presto moment for the city“.
