Woollahra Libraries

Woollahra Library at Double Bay, Paddington Library and Watsons Bay Library are operating a 'Browse and Borrow Service' with bookable study spots and computers. Full details can be found here.

Library members will be able to enter the library to browse the collection and borrow items at the self-checkout kiosks. While no appointment time is required, continued social distancing requires a maximum number of people allowed in the library at any one time so there may be queuing. Please be aware this service is only available for library members. Please remember to bring your library card which will be swiped and details recorded.

We have chosen to take a phased approach to opening, allowing customers to borrow safely from the library. Additional services will be offered when it is deemed safe to do so.

We will continue to host a series of online events.

You can continue to stay connected to our libraries during this time of physical distancing and enjoy our free online resources with your library membership. You can download or stream a great range of eBooks, eAudiobooks, eFilms, eMusic and eMagazines by logging in with your member number and password.

Our friendly staff are available to answer any of your queries between 9am and 5pm weekdays. Call 9391 7100 or
