Celebrating 75 years of free public libraries in NSW
75th anniversary

2014 is the 75th anniversary of the Library Act 1939 which was passed by State Parliament on 3 November 1939.  This landmark legislation led to the provision of free public library services for the people of NSW. Seventy five years later, public libraries are going strong, with 369 libraries across the state, 3.2 million members (that’s 44% of the population), 46 million loans per annum and over 35 million people visiting libraries each year.
