Library services

Designed to educate, engage and enable.

The Adelaide City Libraries are places of infinite possibility. In a city that’s designed for life, our libraries are designed for you to create, connect and be inspired to live the life you want. We’ve got three libraries: one in the city centre, one at Hutt Street, and one in North Adelaide. We also have a rich and diverse Virtual Library open 24/7. 

Our communities sit at the heart of whatever we do and lifelong learning is a core part of our service. Through valuable partnerships we bring you a variety of programs and events, give you access to the latest innovative technology and a range of resources that are free to use.

We’re part of the state-wide One Card Network which gives access to over three million books, audiobooks, newspapers, magazines, movies, music and more.

Explore our webpages or speak to our friendly staff to find out more.
