Welcome to the Living Room of the City where you can explore the pathways to the world.

We provide a warm and welcoming environment in a stunning architectural masterpiece. Throughout four floors, we run and host events and programmes, provide information, literary and digital resources. We collaborate with our community groups and individuals to make our community more engaged, connected, inspired and participatory.

We’re all about:

  • Access to information, ideas and works of imagination
  • Support for lifelong learning
  • Enabling online access to the digital world
  • Community engagement, connection and participation

Whether you're reading, studying, or learning something new, we have it all. Hire DVDs, listen to music in a sunny warm spot with beautiful views or read your favourite magazine. Keep an eye on this website, or our Facebook page for current events.

Please note: All locations are closed on all public holidays unless otherwise advertised.
