A back view of the old library from close to the side entrance to the Botanic Gardens. The building is due to be reduced to ten floors (the top one being an atrium) and re-clad the effect of which will be to make it less intrusive.
New School of Law, Queen's University, Belfast

The former Main Library (1967 – architect John MacGeagh) has been unused since the opening of the McClay Library J3372 : New library, Queen's University, Belfast. The proposal is that it and the Old Library will be renovated and restored as part of a new School of Law. The following is the application for planning permission “Z/2014/0013/F 23/12/2013 Queen's University Library Stack and Peter Froggatt Centre University Road/University Square BT7 1NN Queen's University Belfast main site tower redevelopment to provide a new School of Law and student cafe/amenity area incorporating the partial demolition, extension and remodelling of the former Library Stack, the recladding of the Peter Froggartt Centre, the linking of the two buildings to each other and to the Lanyon Building, associated landscaping and revised access arrangements”.
