The Ward and Allen Libraries are moving

The Ward and Allen libraries will merge in 2015, bringing staff, collections and services together with the move to the new Penrith Library building

The Ward library will cease operation from 1 December 2014 as part of the transition process. 

During the transition, Library services including computers, study rooms, copy/print facilities, staff assistance, intercampus requesting and some access to Penrith collections will be offered via the Allen library until the move is complete in early 2015. 

The Allen library will cease operation on 14 February 2015, with the new library in Kingswood building T opening for use on 16 February 2015.

Penrith students and staff will be contacted via email with more detail about the move as the time draws near.

We regret any inconvenience or disruption arising from these moves, and appreciate your patience as we establish the single Penrith library.
