Hornsby Library

Hornsby Library is closed for ongoing refurbishment works. A date for reopening will be communicated as soon as it is confirmed.

New memberships are being accepted through our online catalogue. Digital resources are available and can be accessed from our eLibrary and via the Library App.

The safety of our community and our staff is always our number one priority. We are constantly reviewing our settings based on the health advice and the NSW Government’s roadmap.

Keep an eye here and on Facebook for further updates:

Hornsby Library Refurbishment

The refurbishment of Hornsby Library is underway and includes internal alterations and fit out to the existing library, minor external works and a business identification sign.

The construction company (Built Pty Limited) are undertaking the works, which will be completed in two stages.

During the refurbishment our collections, public computers, printing and photocopying will be moved to the centre of the library floor.

Hornsby Library – Update to Temporary closure

Due to circumstances beyond our control, the closure of Hornsby Library during the changeover between stages one and two has had to be extended. A date for reopening will be communicated as soon as it is confirmed. We are endeavouring to resume normal opening hours as soon as possible.

During the closure, the refurbishment of the library continues to the next exciting stage. Items can be renewed via the online catalogue, through the library app, or by contacting Pennant Hills Library on 9847 6100. Alternatively, they can be returned through the after-hours chute or at any Hornsby Shire Library branch.

We apologise for any inconvenience and look forward to showing you stage one of the works very soon.
