Welcome to Gold Coast Libraries

COVID-19 Update

In response to the COVID-19 emergency, all Gold Coast Libraries including the Mobile Library are now closed until further notice. Our greatest priority at this time is the health and wellbeing of library customers, team members and the wider community.

We know Gold Coasters love their libraries, and we know you will have a lot of questions – please bear with us while we endeavour to respond to your queries.  

Rest assured, while our doors are closed, our online library is always open – with 24/7 access to our digital collections. Discover ways you can continue to connect with us from home. We have also introduced a temporary online only membership for Gold Coast residents. Once signed up you will get instant access to our great collection of digital resources. Phone your local library to get started.

While we are not going to be open to the public, Local Library phone support is available 8.30am - 5pm, Monday to Friday and 9am - 4pm on Saturdays. You can also contact us via email. Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook and Instagram to stay up to date and informed with any new developments, and to learn more about ways in which you can connect with us from home.

488 Rules For Life: The thankless art of being correct

Book cover of the Wonderful World of Maths

488 Rules for Life is not a self-help book, because it's not you who needs help, it's other people. What started as a joke on Kitty Flanagan's popular segment on ABC TV's The Weekly, is now a quintessential reference book with the power to change society. (Or at least make it a bit less irritating).
