Service Status: the Library space is open, services continue

The Library may be used by theatre staff as break-out space between 11am-3pm, Monday to Friday.

If the space becomes crowded or noisy, an alternative study area is available for Library patrons. Go to room 1.031 in Health Education & Learning Precinct (HELP), adjacent to the Library.

You can keep up with changes to services on our Service Status page.
