Locations and opening hours

There are eight libraries across the inner west: Ashfield, Balmain, Dulwich Hill (Emanuel Tsardoulias Community), Haberfield, Leichardt, Stanmore, Sydenham and Council's historical archive centre in Petersham.

While library systems are being harmonised, separate membership cards are currently needed for borrowing at former Ashfield, Leichhardt and Marrickville libraries. However, your items can now be returned at any Customer Service Centre or library across the entire Inner West Council area, no matter which branch they were borrowed from.

Public holiday notice: All library branches will closed on the Labour Day public holiday Monday, 1 October 2018. The library will re-open on Tuesday, 2 October 2018.
