LIBRARY



Covid-19 restrictions apply for the next few months.  The Library will re-open Thursday 4 June 2020 at 10am.

We will be introducing an online booking system for computers, film readers, fiche readers and reading tables.  This will allow us to manage our capacity and undertake a full clean between each session.  The kitchen will not be available.  Initially, we will be open Tuesday, Thursday and every second Saturday with sessions from 10-12.30pm and 1pm-3.30pm.  We will close at 3.30pm. 

On entry to the Library, your temperature will be taken.  We have hand sanitiser throughout the Library and encourage you to clean your hands regularly whilst in the Library.  

We appreciate your patience as we slowly transition back to being a fully functioning library.

How to Book a Session in the Library

It is essential to book a session to attend the Library (Level 2, 379 Kent Street, Sydney).  You can email, phone 02 9299 5151 or make an online booking here.
