A Connected Community

More than just a place to borrow books, the Adelaide City Libraries are a place where people from all walks of life can come together to create, connect, and inspire.

Our communities lie at the heart of what we do at the Adelaide City Libraries. Our range of programs and events, access to the latest technology, and resources allow everyone space to discover. We nurture a welcoming environment where people are free to be themselves, learn from each other and open their eyes to a world of possibilities.

Discover the Adelaide City Libraries from the perspective of a creative, a volunteer, an employee and a community member.

The Adelaide City Libraries are more than just a place to borrow books. They are a place for everyone. A place to belong. A place that makes a positive difference in the lives of so many people.

Introducing Gabby, a volunteer at the Adelaide City Libraries. Studying 3D modelling, Gabby became a volunteer at the City Library to further her knowledge in 3D printing and to share that with members of our community. Volunteering is an avenue to form connections, a pathway to personal development, growth and wellbeing. Our volunteers make big contributions to our community.

The Adelaide City Libraries are a place where people can come together to share their love of technology and learning and inspire others.
