Libraries After Dark

 In Brimbank Libraries

Brimbank Libraries are open until 10pm on Thursday evenings at Sunshine Library, offering an array of events, programs and workshops to explore and inspire.

Make new friends, spend time learning new skills, or simply relax and unwind in the comfortable, welcoming space that is Your Community Lounge.

While you are there, access all the no charge and low-cost library services and facilities that are available seven days a week.

Libraries After Dark is a statewide initiative funded by the Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation, offering a welcome alternative to the lure of pokies venues in high-risk communities.  Check out the great programs on offer across the state.
