Public Library Services

The State Library's Public Library Services team provides specialist advice and support to all local councils providing public library services to the people of NSW.

Welcome to our new website

We are excited to announce that we have a new website.

We have been working hard to redevelop the Public Library Services site as part of the State Library’s project to upgrade the web content management system. 

New sections include Managing my library, Grants and funding, Standards and guidelines, Connect with the network, Statewide services and Professional development. These improvements will assist in finding the tools, resources, and information you need to deliver your library services.

We think you will find the new site a lot easier to use but please contact us if you cannot find specific content or one of your favourite pages.
