Visiting the Library

Our libraries aim to provide a safe and comfortable shared space for the community to enjoy.

All visitors must ensure that their behaviour does not impact on the ability of others to use and enjoy the facilities provided.

Behaviour code

Library members and visitors should demonstrate respect to others at all times.

The Library provides many resources for the community to share. Library members and visitors should care for the collections, equipment and furniture they use.

Customers should:

  • Be considerate of others
  • Be polite to others
  • Respect the rights of all library customers and staff

Staff assistance:

If you consider another person's conduct to be inappropriate, offensive or threatening please seek help from Library staff.

Child supervision

Children under the age of 10 years of age must be supervised by a responsible adult. Children left unattended may leave the Library, hurt themselves or be approached by strangers. Libraries are busy public places and staff cannot judge which members of the public may present as a possible danger to children.

Food and dress code

Library customers are required to dress in a manner that is appropriate and not likely to cause offence.

Customers should:

  • Wear footwear at all times
  • Keep food and drink away from computers
  • Remember that bare chests and skimpy clothing may cause offence
