Glebe Library

The Glebe Library is right in the heart of the inner city village on Glebe Point Road. It’s very popular with locals, tourists and families. The library is surrounded by a beautiful shaded garden and grassed area – a perfect place for reading. We also have a weekly storytime session for preschoolers.

The library shares the same location with the Glebe Customer Service Centre.
