The City provides library services to enhance the community's well-being socially, economically, intellectually and creatively, and to keep them informed and in touch with the world they live in.

The four public libraries located in Gosnells, Thornlie, Kenwick and Southern River provide access to:

  • a wide range of collections
  • electronic and physical resources
  • inclusive services
  • interesting and entertaining programs and activities
  • special resources, services, and activities for children and teens.

The majority of library services require you to be a member but the good news is that it’s free to join!

If you would like to receive information about library events and services by email, you can sign up for the e-newsletter on the link below.
