Spaces for Everyone

Spaces to relax, learn and catch up!

Our Libraries provide spaces to study, relax, learn, catch up on the latest news and do business away from the office or home.

You can even drop in for a coffee and a yummy treat at the Boab Cafe in Civic Square Library.

LOTE – Languages Other Than English

Our Libraries offer titles in a range of languages other than English including: French, Chinese, Italian, Dutch, German, Hindi, Indonesian, Japanese, Spanish and Tamil.

Search available titles in your preferred language by doing an advanced search on our Libraries and Museums Catalogue and selecting your preferred language from the “Additional Limits: Language” drop down menu.

If you can’t find the language or title you are looking for, the State Library of WA offer a wider range of languages and titles which can be requested on Interlibrary Loan.
