Libraries

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.

What's on at the library

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.

Notice: Haberfield Library will be closed from Monday, 14 May 2018 to Monday, 28 May 2018 for urgent roof repairs. The library will re-open Tuesday, 29 May 2018. Should you have any enquiries regarding the library during this time, please contact Ashfield Library on 9392 5810.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused and we look forward to seeing you in the library upon its re-opening.

 

All library branches will be closed on the Queen’s Birthday public holiday Monday 11 June. The library will re-open on Tuesday 12 June.
