Donating community language books
The library accepts books in new condition, or published less than 2 years ago, in the following languages:
Donating local historic items
You can donate items with local historical value as this helps maintain and develop the library's history collection. We’ll only accept items relevant to this collection.
Once we accept them, donations become the library's property. We reserve the right to dispose of any donated materials at a later date.
To donate relevant items or find out more, contact the City of Sydney Library on 02 9265 9333 or [email protected]
