Closed for library planning day

All ACT public libraries close one day each year to allow staff to attend the annual Libraries ACT planning day. This includes the Home Library Service, mobile library and ACT Heritage Library, as well as the Canberra Connect driver license service located at Civic Library and Archives ACT located upstairs at Woden Library. Regular programs will not run on this day, including story time and Giggle & Wiggle sessions.

All online services will still be available, including searching, requesting and renewing items online. Items can be returned using the return chutes located outside each Libraries ACT branch.

It is important that all Libraries ACT staff come together for one day a year and have an opportunity to contribute to planning future services, programs and initiatives. Due to the seven day per week operation of libraries, this is the only way library staff can meet together for this purpose.
