Building community

Green Square Library is currently closed. It is relocating to 355 Botany Road, Zetland, and will reopen in August 2018.

The new, purpose-built centre is at the heart of Green Square and next to Green Square train station. It is also well serviced by bus routes.

The new Green Square Library will give you access to an even bigger collection of books, CDs, DVDs, magazines and newspapers. 

The library features a striking 6-storey glass tower and will house community and reading rooms and a technology suite. A music room with a baby grand piano will be available for practice and rehearsals.

A City of Sydney customer service centre will be part of the new Green Square Library. 

You can use the City’s other library branches and our online services while we relocate.

Your closest branches are: 

  • Waterloo Library at 770 Elizabeth Street, Waterloo. The after-hours return chute is on Kellick Street.
  • Surry Hills Library at 405 Crown Street, Surry Hills. This library is accessible via the 301 bus from Joynton Avenue, Zetland. 

Weekly rhymetime and storytime on Mondays and Wednesdays will run from the Tote Building in Green Square until the new library opens.
