We are part of the SA public library ‘one card’ network. Using your Holdfast Bay library card you will be able to reserve and borrow material held at any South Australian public library. You can also return your library items to any SA public library.
Christmas/New Year Hours
The City of Holdfast Bay Libraries will be closed on the Christmas and New Year Public Holidays.
We will be open for business as usual all other days with the exception that Glenelg Library will close at 5pm on 24 December 2014 and 31 January 2015.
The Library staff would like to wish everyone a safe and happy Christmas and New Year.
Access the Library Catalogue

Enter the barcode number printed on your library card which starts with "X01", (the second number is a zero) and the PIN will be the last four digits of your phone number (if the card is a Holdfast Bay Library Card).
