If you live in metropolitan Adelaide the chances are you won’t be too far from a Community or Neighbourhood Centre.
These centres help individuals, families and community groups connect and thrive by offering a wide range of services and activities designed to meet other people, learn new skills, make changes in your life and above all have fun.
Community Centres are friendly places where anyone can:
- Have a chat

They offer a diverse range of activities and you will be spoilt for choice. Get involved in:

- Sport activities & get fit classes
- Outdoor activities
- Health & well being
- Woodworking & repairs
- Social groups
- School holiday programs
- Activities for kids & seniors
Many of these activities are free or low-cost and there really is something for everyone.
Most Council’s have one or more libraries with free membership that provides you access to:
- An extensive collection of books (including audio books and e-books), movies, magazines and more
- Activities and programs for children, families, adults and teens
- Free WiFi
- Computers with internet access and applications
- Online learning resources including the Libraries SA App
- Use of technology and tools within the library

Most libraries are part of the One Card Library Network, connecting 130 public libraries throughout South Australia. You can use your library card to access items from anywhere in the State. Reserve an item and it will be delivered to your preferred library.
You can even arrange for a book to be delivered if you are unable to visit the library in person.
You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.
