The Weston Library is part of the Bodleian Library, the main research library of the University of Oxford, reopened within the former New Bodleian Library building on the corner of Broad Street and Parks Road in central Oxford. It’s a new build by Oxford’s standards, being refurbished in 2015. The Weston was originally built to house books that couldn’t be stored in the Old Bodleian any more. And it does it’s job well, with over 5 million books stored in its huge vaults.
Best of all you can go in for free as a visitor. There’s a rotating exhibition in the main foyer which displays some of the rarest books in the whole Bodleian, and is well worth checking out.
