New opening hours from Monday 12 July

WHAT'S CHANGING

We are pleased to be introducing extended opening hours for the Research Library and our public areas, including; the community hub, Treasures Wall, Mortlock chamber, Gallery, and Café. From Saturday 17 July the Library will be open on Saturdays and Sundays from 12 to 5pm. 

As the Library is taking part in Illuminate Adelaide’s City Lights Trail, our longer week-day evening hours will start on Monday 2 August.

We are excited to be part of the Illuminate Adelaide event, showcasing the work of Polish Australian artist Stanislaus Ostoja-Kotkowski as it is reimagined through the contemporary vision of acclaimed artist Robin Fox. You can view the laser installation from the Library forecourt every night from 16 July to 1 August from 6pm.

We are closed on public holidays.
