Australia Day library hours

One of the wonderful things about Australia is our propensity for celebrating public holidays. So, as Australia Day is this Saturday, we observe the Australia Day public holiday on Monday 28 January. Gotta love a public holiday, right?

Our libraries will be open reduced hours for Australia Day and the Monday public holiday.

If you’re not relaxing at the beach, having a BBQ or simply enjoying the day off and do want to visit the library, be sure to check the library opening hours for your campus library first.

Happy public holiday-ing!

Library opening hours for Labour Day

Zoe Fraser

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, 2018).

Though it may be a public holiday for you, our libraries will still be open if you feel like taking the opportunity to catch up on some study! Hours will be shorter though, so be sure to check the library opening hours for your campus library before you come to visit:

  Monday 7 May
Gold Coast  10 am – 5 pm
Logan  12 pm – 5 pm
Mt Gravatt  12 pm – 5 pm
Nathan  10 am – 5 pm
QCA  9 am – 1 pm
QCGU  1 pm – 5 pm

  Wednesday 25 April
Gold Coast  12 pm – 5 pm

Library hours over the Easter long weekend

Two fantastic events are just around the corner!

  1. 1. Easter! We’re down with any excuse to justify our chocolate addiction, and
  2. 2. Mid-trimester break. Phew *wipes beads of nervous sweat off forehead*. We’re sure you’re well and truly ready for this break.

Our campus libraries will be closed for the Easter public holidays, though Nathan and Gold Coast campus libraries will be open reduced hours on Saturday and Monday.

Changes to Gold Coast and South Bank library hours this weekend

 

We all know the importance of maintenance. Maintaining your grades, your fitness levels, your meme game…

We also need to maintain our buildings! To do so, our QCA and Gold Coast Libraries will have changes in opening hours over this weekend.

Saturday 20 January

  • QCA library will be closed all day. Now, if you were planning to trek into South Bank today to visit the library, don’t fret! QCGU library will be open longer hours–9 am to 5 pm–to account for the QCA closure.

Sunday 21January

  • Gold Coast library will be opening late, at 12 pm (instead of the usual 10 am) due to an Energex electricity outage. Good news is that it’s business as usual from midday, and you can come enjoy the air con, library spaces and see our wonderful smiling faces.

Changes to Nathan and Gold Coast library hours

Hats off, it’s an early knock off!

Nathan library will be closing at 5 pm today (Friday), and be closed all weekend for maintenance works. Nathan library will open 7 am on Monday for normal hours (we know, you missed our smiling faces!)

Gold Coast library will also be closing early tonight, at 7 pm, and the 24/7 study lounge in G11 will be closed between 7 pm Friday and 9 am Saturday. Gold Coast library will be open as usual for the rest of the weekend, so come and enjoy the air con!

Remember, you can also contact us by phone, email or chat in the meanwhile, visit another campus library (check out opening hours here), or visit a computer lab.
