Library service hours will be reduced to 1-5pm tomorrow, Saturday 25 April 2020, to honour the Anzac Day public holiday. You can view all our service hours on the library website.

Anzac Day may look a little different this year, but we encourage our community to commemorate and honour those who have served our nation, but on this occasion to do this from the safety of their homes. Government and RSLs have come up with alternative ways to commemorate the occasion:

Light up the Dawn – Remember those who have served and sacrificed by streaming audio of a short commemorative service at home, at 6am on Anzac Day.

Anzac Day broadcasts – Listen to Anzac Day broadcasts on radio or watch the services and events on TV. ABC TV will be broadcasting coverage of services in Sydney and Canberra, Gallipoli and France from 4.30am.

State Library of Queensland (SLQ) collections – explore SLQ’s Anzac Day and war related resources and collections.

You may like to commemorate in your own way by baking Anzac cookies, sharing or listening to stories or remembering friends or relatives who have served.

Lest we forget.
