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 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.
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.
Our Library is at 2/379 Kent Street Sydney. This is on the western side of Kent Street between King & Market Streets, and slightly closer to Town Hall than Wynyard railway station. The nearest commercial car park is a few doors along at 383 Kent Street and it offers reasonable weekend and early-bird rates, especially if pre-booked. There is a cycle way along this part of Kent Street and street parking is extremely limited.
All mail should be sent to 120 Kent Street Millers Point as there is no postal delivery to 2/379 Kent Street.
Our Archives, library stack and seminar facilities are at Richmond Villa, 120 Kent Street, Millers Point. This is at the northern (The Rocks) end of Kent Street just past the approaches to the Harbour Bridge and adjacent to Observatory Hill. Wynyard Station (train and bus) is a 10 minute walk and ferries are 15 minutes away at Circular Quay or Barangaroo Wharf. There is metered street parking outside the building.
