Both Manning and South Perth Libraries closing early on 23 October

The City's libraries will be closed from 1pm on Monday 23 October for staff training. Please make use of the after hours chutes to return any items after this time. Both libraries will resume normal hours on Tuesday 24 October.

New Library Management System

The City's libraries have reopened with the new Library Management System. Whilst the new software system will deliver an improved user experience, we are still learning. As library staff have been in training and mastering the new software, we have been wearing our 'L plates' and have now progressed to our 'P' plates.

Along with our new system, there are also changes being made behind the scenes to our web Online Public Access Catalogue and online member area. Though there are a few elements that still require some tweaking, this service is now operational. 

We are happy to assist you with any questions about loans, renewals, searching the catalogue, reservations, etc. Let us know what you need and we will endevour to help you.

The City and library staff appreciate your patience during this period of transition.  

Manning Library officially opened Jan 30 2017.

Address: 2 Conochie Crescent - free underground parking off Bradshaw Crescent.

Manning Library is part of the Manning Community Hub project. This community space is filled with comfortable seating to enjoy books or the WIFI and gives library users access to more public computers. The new technologically advanced library opened on January 30, 2017, offering a range of new services.

Please check our opening hours for amended Saturday hours.

The new library has four self loan stations with a staff terminal. The library is 100% self loan service with a staff member close by to guide you through the process.

If you are visiting Manning Library for the first time, a staff member is more than happy to show you how the self loan stations work.

Self loan kiosk Manning

A 24/7 returns chute is located on the Conochie Crescent side of the facility. For ease of access there are two 10 minute parking bays available near the Conochie Crescent entrance.

Return Chute

The 24 hour returns chute gives library members the ability to return items day or night. It gives members a receipt after checking in their items instantly. To ensure accuracy when recording your return, please insert three library items at a time.

In addition to our self service terminals, we have a membership desk and roving staff. This allows our staff to help patrons throughout the library, enhancing customer service. We believe this state of the art technology will improve the library experience.
