Our libraries are spaces that continuously evolve to meet community needs and expectations. Forestville Library is ready to be improved to transform it into a dynamic and flexible space full of future opportunities. 

What are we doing and why?

The aim of the works is to increase visitation and usage of Forestville Library by improving the space to meet community needs now and into the future. The existing entrance and service area will be opened up to improve accessibility and provide a welcoming "community lounge" area for all users of the building.

When is this happening?

Forestville Library will be closed from 3 May while these works take place. The works should be complete by the end of May, weather permitting. 

Regular visitors of Forestville Library will be notified to return their items to Glen Street Library as it is the closest branch for returns, browsing and borrowing. A temporary book returns bin will also be available at Forestville Library, which will be safely accessible from the outside.

You can continue to use our Click and Collect service, you just need to elect to have your item sent to a branch other than Forestville. As always, you can access a wealth of digital content through our eLibrary.

If you have any questions, please contact us. We are always here to help.

We look forward to welcoming you back to our improved Forestville Library soon!
