City of Canterbury Library

Our libraries are a valuable source of knowledge in our City and a wealth of information. They're one of our most popular and often used facilities. Our libraries have more than 35,000 members and more than 2,500 visitors per day.

There's always so much to see and do at our libraries, they've become part of the daily life of thousands of local residents.

With a wide range of FREE items for loan, including books, magazines, DVDs and CDs, plus exciting programs such as author talks, book groups, cultural events and activities for children and teenagers, there really is something for everyone.

Our extensive Community Language Collections include more than 28,000 items in Arabic, Bengali, Chinese, Greek, Korean and Vietnamese and our storytimes in various community languages are very popular.

Our libraries even extend into resident's homes - our Home Library Service delivers all types of library resources, including large print books and audio books direct to people's doors who are housebound.

The Local Studies and Family History collections are specialised reference collections which will help you discover the history, geography and legacy of Canterbury City. From the crisp pages of local newspapers and the glossy reels of microfilmed records to eBooks downloaded with the click of a button, these collections collect and collate fascinating details from Canterbury's rich and varied past. Located at Campsie Library during opening hours, our physical collection is extensive. We are also progressively releasing collection content online.
