About the Library

Everyone is welcome to visit our SMSA Library spaces. Members are able to take advantage of our in-house facilities and to borrow from our collection.

Located in the Sydney CBD near Town Hall, the SMSA Library is the perfect place to spend a quiet lunch hour, pay a visit after work or to enjoy in between shopping in the city.

Unlike other libraries, the Sydney Mechanics’ School of Arts Library has generous borrowing periods – 8 weeks for most items – and there are no charges for reserving or requesting books.
