Parents' Room

A Parents’ Room is available on Level 2 (the top floor) of the Academy Library during the Library’s opening hours.

While the room is located in the Library, it is a service that is managed by the Equity & Diversity Unit.

The room has blinds for privacy and is equipped with a comfortable chair for breastfeeding, a fridge, and a work table and chair. Toys and books need to be provided by the parent while COVID protocols are in place.

Hand-washing facilities are available in the Library’s staff administration area on Level 1 during regular working hours. Please speak to a library staff member for access.

Baby change facilities are available within the Level 2 accessible washroom facilities.

Clients must book the Parents’ Room before using it. Booking sheets are provided on the room door. The booking sheet must be checked prior to entering the room. If two clients wish to use the room and no booking has been made, breastfeeding/expressing must take priority over the supervision of children.

Contact the Equity & Diversity Unit within working hours for advice and support, or to provide feedback on the Parents’ Room. More EDI information is available here.
