All libraries are closed on public holidays.
Drysdale Library is a busy, medium-sized community library located in the central business district. Councillor John Mitchell and David Morris MO officially re-opened the library on 3 February 2012, after an extensive refurbishment. We have a popular newspaper and magazine reading area and kids love sinking into the bean bags and big cushions in our dedicated children’s zone.
