Our library network

The City of Sydney has been providing library services to residents, workers and visitors for more than 100 years. To read about our history and see a snapshot of our future directions, see the past and present section.

Most of our branches are accessible to people with a disability. If you are not mobile enough to get to a branch, our home library service is for you.

Other services on offer include display spaces for local artists.

 

Street Library

The community-run program allows you to take a book and keep it for as long as you like. You can also donate a book for others to read. No library card required.
