City’s libraries limited to digital services

March 23, 2020

City of Newcastle has made the difficult decision to limit its library service to digital only, as part of its continuing efforts to limit the transmission of COVID-19 in our community.​

All front facing services and branch operations have been temporarily suspended.    


City of Newcastle accepts the advice of the Federal Government that many non-essential services should be temporarily shut down to limit the spread of COVID-19. 


The City’s libraries will continue to offer a broad range of digital programs, content and services online.   


Novocastrians are encouraged to download the free Newcastle Library App which provides home access to the e-library, including adult and children’s e-books, newspapers, magazines, music and movie streaming services and online learning.  To access the e-library visit
