We’ll come to you!

City of Ryde Library is pleased to introduce our new Library2U delivery service.

To support continued reading for our community during these times, we are offering this service to all library members who reside in the City of Ryde local government area. Hunters Hill residents can also access this service until 30 June 2020.

Library2U delivers books every month directly to you as a contactless service. Reservations will be open for customers from Wednesday 6 May, with deliveries commencing Monday 11 May onwards.

Alternatively, the Home Library Service is now temporarily available to all residents aged 65 years and above, that live in City of Ryde. Hunters Hill residents also have access to this service until 30 June 2020. To set up free home deliveries and collection of library items please contact the Home Library Service Officer at 02 9952 8365 or email
