Stay up late at Sydney's libraries

We're creating a city that is diverse, welcoming, safe and fun at night. Following the tremendous success of late night sessions at Surry Hills Library, we're rolling the concept out across the City.

From Newtown to Kings Cross and Customs House, the City's libraries will be hosting late-night talks, comedy acts and films from right through to April next year.

Great cities offer great choices for people to have fun at night, and our Libraries Up Late program opens up these great spaces to people who live, work and visit the city.
