Library locations

All Adelaide City Libraries are temporarily closed.

As part of City of Adelaide’s planned response to protect the health and wellbeing of our community, we have temporarily closed this facility.

We understand how important these facilities are to you as a customer. We will continue to monitor the situation closely so we may reopen our facility as soon as possible. All updates will be provided on our website which will be updated regularly.

Refer to this webpage the latest update regarding our response to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) situation.

For your convenience there are three libraries in the city area - City Library, located off Rundle Mall, Hutt Street Library and the North Adelaide Library.

Great service, and your facilities are amazing! I feel like I've just jumped straight into the next century!” – Library visitor

Opening hours

While opening hours and offerings vary between the libraries, all have 24-hour return chutes for return of borrowed items. There is also a 24 hour returns chute at Adelaide South West Community Centre and you can choose to collect requested library items from this centre.

All of our libraries offer Justice of the Peace services, are Communication Access accredited, and have printers, photocopiers, public computers, WiFi and internet access.

If you have an electric mobility device you’ll appreciate the recharge station. Just look for the recharge sticker or ask the staff who will be happy to help you. Staff wear a bright green lanyard for easy identification and are trained in the use of communication boards to help those with communication issues.
