Make your way to The Women’s Library

The Women’s Libray is in the inner-Sydney suburb of Newtown, which is well served by public transport and is a great place for eating out and shopping, as well as reading at The Women’s Library. The Library has a carefully selected collection of books, periodicals, and DVDs of interest to women, and our community space is available to women’s groups for meetings, workshops, and other activities.

Being a member of The Women’s Library gives you access to all sorts of books you might not find in your local library. We have a substantial collection of feminist literature and lesbian fiction, as well as every genre imaginable where women are active as writers and publishers.

As we are a not-for-profit community-based organisation, membership fees help us to run the Library. Annual membership covers November – October, and fees remain at a very low $5 (individuals) and $50 (groups) this year. If you are a current or past member who has not renewed, please do so as soon as possibleFees may be paid at the library or by direct deposit.

Alternatively, if you would like to assist with our running costs, please make a tax-deductible donation to The Women’s Library.
