Using the Library From Home

The COVID-19 pandemic is a time like no other. We've had to close our libraries multiple times, and when we've been open some of our services have been limited to keep everyone safe.

But no matter what happens, Wollongong City Libraries are here for you!

We know it's not quite the same as visiting us, but there are still plenty of resources and activities you can safely access from the comfort of your own home.

Links to some of our home-friendly activities and services are listed below.

You can also use our online form to contact us any time if you have a question.
