We are delighted to welcome you back to the library.
The Library will be returning to normal opening hours December 1 2021.
As always, the health and safety of our staff, readers and visitors is our priority so we will be complying strictly with the relevant NSW Public Health Orders as we work to protect everyone who comes through our doors.
All staff, readers and visitors (aged 16 or over) will need to be fully vaccinated before they can come into the Library. You will be asked to present your digital or printed vaccination certificate as part of the check-in process. Face masks must be worn at all times until further notice.
We will do our best to get everyone through our doors as quickly as possible, and I urge everyone to please be patient while our staff make the necessary checks.
Programs - All library programs and events have been suspended until further notice.
Click and Collect - From 22 September 2021 the Click and Collect service will be available.
Digital Library - Is available 24/7.
Our services won't look the same as normal and may be limited, but the health and safety of our staff and visitors are our top priority, as such compliance with NSW Health requirements and guidelines are central to the conditions and services during this time.
Archive access by appointment only. Enquiries via online form, email or phone welcome.
