Library Holiday Hours

The holidays are nearly here! The TAFE vacation period is from Monday 26th September – Friday 7th October. Some libraries will be closed, or open only for part of the vacation period. Click here to check the opening hours for your campus Library over the break.

Going away? Most Libraries let you return your books after the holidays, but please check with Library staff. Also, please make sure that you have renewed your items if you need to do so.

Remember that you can renew your items online, via TAFEcat. To do this, you will need to get your PIN number from Library staff. Once we have given you a PIN number, you can log in and change it to something that you will easily remember.
