British library closes the Reading Room

Horrified to discover the Reading Room at the British Museum is to be closed for 2 years.

It was wonderful to be able to sit and study in it. They have replaced it with Rm 2 which is too small. National museums thinking first of money. The Reading Room will be open for Blockbuster exhibitions which, I assume, will have an admissions fee.
