Kingston Libraries Reopening

Kingston Libraries will reopen from Wednesday 28 July 2021. Capacity limits are currently in place. Please check our opening hours below.

In line with the State Government's current restrictions, it's still not business as usual just yet. We've made a few changes to our service delivery to accommodate current physical distancing and gathering limits, and to ensure safe hygiene practices.

We have onsite cleaners doing touch-point cleaning at all open branches.
