NSBS Library

The Society’s Library continues to be closed until further notice. Library staff are available for research and reference assistance during our office hours Monday to Friday 8:30 am – 4:30 pm by emailing or calling 1 866-219-1202 (toll-free).

We are currently accepting returns and requests to borrow materials using “curbside” pick-up and drop-off. Please request materials by emailing and we will advise when to come pick up your materials. 

The Barristers’ Gowning room is currently closed to members as we are unable to monitor for cleaning and sanitization. If you require access because you left robes or anything in a locker, please contact the library ( or call 1 866-219-1202 toll free) & we will arrange to get the items.
