What's on at the Library


If you are a new resident to Australia, you may be eligible to become an Australian Citizen. The Mayor officiates at Citizenship Ceremonies as required at the Burnside Civic Centre. This culminates in the Australia Day celebration where many new residents choose to have their citizenship bestowed as part of the celebrations of the day. If you are interested in becoming a Citizen, please contact border.gov.au.
