Justice of the Peace Services

Due to refurbishment, Ryde Library will be closed from Friday 22 November and will reopen on Saturday 7 December. During this period, our JP's service at Ryde Library will temporarily move downstairs to Customer Service. Please check closer to the date for the availability of JP Services at Customer Service.

Members of the NSW Justices Association volunteer their services at our libraries at the following locations and times.

As this service is performed by volunteers we encourage you to contact each library before attending with your documents to ensure that the Justice of the Peace is available. This is to avoid any disappointment on the rare occasion that a Justice of the Peace isn't available.
