Hornsby Library – Update to Temporary closure

Due to circumstances beyond our control, the closure of Hornsby Library 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.


Due to space limitations during the refurbishment, limited public PCs and power points are available, however, we are unable to provide study space. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Hornsby Shire Library & Information Service has 4 libraries located throughout the shire. Membership is free and provides access to a wide range of services. To contact us, find out more about membership and the facilities, please see the sections below.
