City Library Access Guide 

The Adelaide City Libraries staff have been working with Adelaide City Council Access and Inclusion Advisory Panel (AIAP) to ensure that the library is a welcoming and inclusive place for everyone to enjoy. The AIAP is made up of 12 people with experience of disability.

This City Library Access guide is one of the outcomes of this work. Use this guide to make your experience of accessing the City Library and using its facilities and services an enjoyable one.


While every effort has been made to provide information within the Guide on key accessibility considerations, if you would like to ask specific questions you can:
