Community Libraries

Located at Avalon, Seaforth, Freshwater and Terrey Hills, the four Northern Beaches community libraries are run by dedicated volunteers.

The collections vary across all four Community Libraries. Each library has fiction, non-fiction, large print and children's books and some have audiobooks and DVDs. Services such as Children's programs, assistance with research, Internet, photocopying and fax facilities are available but not at all locations. Please contact the library you are intending to visit to confirm the available services.

Council is taking measured precautions to keep our staff and community safe. In line with Government health advice and to maintain public health, all libraries are closed until further notice. Enquiries: 1300 434 434.
