Forestville 24/7

The Forestville 24/7 public trial has ended.

Thank you to the community members who took part and provided valuable feedback on the Forestville 24/7 public trial. The trial has been a big success, exceeding expectations in terms of membership and after-hours visitations, and we have decided to continue to allow access whilst we undertake a final review before the planned full launch in early 2023.

What’s next:

• Members who participated in the trial will continue to have 24/7 after-hours access to Forestville Library.

• Forestville 24/7 will be launching in early 2023. Stay tuned!

Please note 24/7 access to Forestville Library will be unavailable from 5pm Friday 23 December and will resume at 5pm on Tuesday 3 January 2023 for authorised members.
