The Harry Bailey Memorial Library in the city centre is closing to the public on Saturday 5 August 2023 as work begins to transfer its collections to the new library at Yarrila Place.

Library members will also be able to temporarily borrow up to 60 library items for up to 3 months and reserve a total of 30 items to make sure they continue to have as much access as possible.

Rapid Reads - short loan popular books - collections will be expanded at both libraries.

All eBooks, eAudiobooks and databases will continue to be available to library members as normal.
