Family Library Mawson Lakes 01

Learning, cultural and community hub

Situated in the Mawson Centre, the Mawson Lakes Public Library is a modern and spacious facility. Featuring a huge selection of books, magazines, DVDs, CDs and video games, the library offers a comprehensive selection of study programmes and school holiday activities for children of all ages. Publicly accessible computers are available to use, along with separate study areas, relaxation spaces and designated children's play areas to keep the kids entertained. A Justice of the Peace is also available at the library during specific times. Located close to the Mawson Lakes UniSA and the central restaurant and cafe district on Mawson Lakes Boulevard, the library is also a short walk from the beautiful main lake in Mawson Lakes.

One Card Network

Connecting more than 130 public libraries across SA, the 'One Card Network' enables Salisbury Library Service patrons to borrow and return items wherever they are with their current library card.

Free Computer Access

Members and visitors can access library computers for internet access and word processing. Black and white or colour printing is available at a cost. Children under the age of 18 need authorisation from their parent or guardian to access the internet.

Wireless Internet

Members with wi-fi enabled devices can register and log in to the secure wireless network within the library. Download limits apply.

One Book One Salisbury

Salisbury's biggest book club highlights different authors and titles each year. Borrow the book from the library, then attend an event with the author for a chance to meet and hear them, as well as get a book signed. One Book One Salisbury runs from May to August each year.

Author Events

Local and interstate authors are hosted by Salisbury Libraries throughout the year. Authors may visit at the invitation of the library or in conjunction with The Advertiser Little or Big Book clubs.

Summer Reading Club

During the summer holidays, children up to the age of 18 can register and record all the titles they read. The library rewards the most avid readers but everyone who participates has the opportunity to have fun and win prizes. The Club is promoted in early December.

School Holidays

During the school holidays programs for children of all ages, including preschool, are held across all of the library branches. Pick up a flyer before the holidays start or subscribe to their monthly e-newsletter for information about programs and bookings.
