City Libraries will be closed Friday 3 April to Monday 6 April inclusive for the Easter public holiday period. All branch libraries will re-open on Tuesday 7 April. The catalogue and Online library will be available 24/7 for your convenience.

Our SMS provider has recently made changes which we hope will resolve the intermittent failure of SMS message delivery to our Vodafone customers. We thank our customers with Vodafone for their patience while the vendor worked to resolve the issue.
Vodafone customers who opted out of receiving hold messages by SMS are encouraged to speak to library staff to reactivate these messages.
