In the beautiful old Waterloo Town Hall building, this library has been popular with locals since it opened in 1972. It is home to our Koori and Russian collections.
Waterloo Library will temporarily close from 4pm on Friday 24 March for roof repairs. We expect to reopen in late July 2023. The returns chute won’t be open during this time.
Our nearest branch is Green Square Library, a 13 minute walk, 950m away.
We appreciate your patience and look forward to reopening as soon as possible.
