ACT Heritage Library

ACT Heritage Library

The ACT Heritage Library helps tell the stories of Canberra and its people. We collect, preserve, promote and provide access to the documents that record the lives of Canberrans at home and in the wider community.

We encourage relevant donations to our collection.

The ACT Heritage Library has moved

The ACT Heritage Library has moved to 255 Canberra Avenue, Fyshwick and we're excited about the new opportunities this offers for the history and heritage community.

Our new opening hours are 9.30am-5pm Monday to Friday, 10am-4pm on Saturday.

Some free parking is available nearby and unmetered 2 hour parking is adjacent to 255 Canberra Avenue, Fyshwick. The bus which services this address is Route 2.

The ACT Heritage Library lending collection may be borrowed from the new location, or requested for delivery to your nearest public library branch. Returns of these items are via any ACT public library branch. You are also able to have your requested items sent to Fyshwick for easy collection.
