Important update: Library Branch closures

Council considers the health, safety and well-being of the community to be our top priority. Mindful of the current public health situation, and as a precautionary measure to help limit the impact of COVID-19, Council will be closing all library branches to the public until further notice.

While we are closed, your current loans will not become overdue, items can be returned via our after-hours chutes, and any current reservations will be held for you until such time as we reopen - please do not visit branches to collect items. Items can still be reserved and requested while we are closed.

Access to free wi-fi is still available around our branches, and you can keep informed about library news via this website. Don't forget our extensive range of online resources are still available 24/7
