Epping branch library is the newest library branch to join the City of Parramatta Council library network, following Council boundary changes in 2016.
There is a small designated kids area in the back right hand corner, with books, kids chairs and tables to sit at. We heard though that the space is a LOT bigger then it used to be!
There are also three weekly rhyme time sessions during school term and a fenced playground in front of the library.
Weekly Reading Programs
Epping branch library run two very popular weekly reading programs for kids under 5:
- Redsee’s Bibs ‘n’ Books for 0-2yrs on Wednesday from 10:30-11am.

Fenced Playground – Pembroke Street Park
