The Richard Powell library and the attached computer suite are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Students can borrow up to ten books at a time on a self-service basis. In office hours the library is staffed by a librarian and assistant, who are able to give advice on library and information resources in Sidney and in the many other libraries in Cambridge.

For more information on the library and its facilities, see The library also houses display cases which are used to exhibit some of the College's special collection of manuscripts and early books (the full collection is stored in the archives).
