Important notice

Chifley Library is experiencing periods of noise disruption while construction work takes place to fix the roof.

Starting 3 October, there will be an increase in noise due to drilling. This is expected to last two weeks. If quiet study is preferred, we recommend using another branch

Visit the hail repair updates webpage for a schedule of works and what to expect during this process.
