The Attic

The Attic on Level 5 is our dedicated floor for young adults (12 to 24 years).

On this floor young adult library users have access to:

  • The collection of books, magazines, graphic novels and DVDs for young adults;
  • Information on young adult events and programs;
  • Computers and WiFi* and
  • Study rooms.

Study rooms

The study rooms on Level 5 can be booked for one two-hour session per day. Young adults can book in person on Level 5 or call the Library on (08) 9461 3580 to make a booking. The study rooms can be booked up to a week in advance. Please note that the room will be allocated to someone else if you do not arrive within within fifteen minutes of your booking time. From December 2017, you will also need a current City of Perth Library membership to use these rooms.

Carpe Librum

Seize the book!

The Library's personalised book recommendation service for young adults (12 to 24 years).

We put our collective brain power to the test to find you great reads! To sweeten the deal, we randomly select subscribers to receive some of our favourite book-ish gifts. Subscribers will receive an email once every three months with two titles our librarians recommend you try. You will need to collect your prizes from the City of Perth Library. All subscribers must have a City of Perth Library card. Subscribe now.

Inner Circle

Have you ever wondered how an author thinks? Where they get their ideas? How they take a tiny moment of inspiration and weave hundreds of pages out of it? Have you ever wanted to ask? Now’s your chance. We’ve found authors who are happy to have their brains picked for every shred of wisdom and every funny anecdote.

We regret to announce that the conversation with Eliza Henry-Jones on P is for Pearl has had to be cancelled due to the presenter’s ill health.
We hope to schedule another Inner Circle session soon.
