Library facilities and services

You can do more than borrow books at Brisbane City Council libraries. Our libraries offer a variety of facilities and services, including free internet access and computer training, as well as meeting room hire. Brisbane City Archives at Moorooka holds Council's archive records and can be accessed by the public during designated times.
