Library opening hours for Australia Day

australiaday

For all those who have been enjoying using our libraries over the summer break, we are taking another quick respite.

Griffith Libraries (across all campuses) will be closed for the Australia Day public holiday tomorrow.

We are heading to the beach to build sandcastles, take a dip, and kick up our feet. If you’re not too busy hanging out in a friend’s pool listening to the Triple J Hottest 100, we may see you there!

Though if that’s not your thing, you can access all your favourite online resources 24/7 on the Library website.

Remember, always check the library opening hours for your campus library before you come to visit.

It’s Labour Day on Monday! Labour Day ‘is an annual public holiday that celebrates the eight-hour working day, a victory for workers in the mid-late 19th century.

‘The argument for the eight-hour day was based on the need for each person to have eight hours labour, eight hours recreation, and eight hours rest’ (Public Holidays, 2016).

Library opening hours have changed for the Labour Day long weekend, so be sure to check the library opening hours for your campus library before you come to visit:
