Hornsby Shire Family History Group

Hornsby Shire Libraries are open in accordance with the latest COVID-19 safety guidelines from NSW Government.

Our libraries are operating with limited hours, and we encourage you to use our Click & Collect service to keep your visit as brief as possible.

We are progressively increasing services and opening hours over the coming months based on advice from state and federal government.
