Our brand new library in the heart of Darling Square is fast taking shape. It's set to open later in 2019. The library will be housed on 2 floors of The Exchange building, overlooking a public plaza. The spiral-like building wrapped in timber ribbons is designed by Japanese architects Kengo Kuma & Associates.

Sydney Town Hall has been lit up tonight in the colours of New Zealand’s flag in solidarity with the people of Christchurch and in tribute to the victims of yesterday’s attack. The City of Sydney offers its strong support to the City of Christchurch ( @christchurchnz ) at this sad time.
