Chess Club

Library members aged 12+ can borrow a library chess set for 90 minutes and play with friends within the library. Feeling competitive we also have chess timers as well for you to use in the library. Limited sets are available. In Library use only.

Film Club

Blacktown City Libraries runs a film club where we show a film on our large screen at the Max Webber Function Room, Max Webber Library, Blacktown.

You are then invited to stay for a discussion on the various issues of the film: maybe the director, the actors, were their controversial issues about the film and over a traditional cuppa you get to enjoy a conversation and learn a few things too.

Upcoming Films

Homework Help

Our free Homework Help service is available every Tuesday and Thursday from 4pm-7pm, during school terms only, at the Mount Druitt Hub.
We have teachers who turn up to help students (and parents) from Years 3 - 9  with homework or even to understand the new concepts they are learning in class.

What to bring:

  • your homework
  • pen and paper
  • your parent or guardian (if you are under 12 years of age).

Knitting and Craft Groups

Want to hang out and get crafty? Want to find inspiration or even a mentor who could teach you a new stitch or two? Come along and learn some new skills and make some new friends.

You need to bring your own material or your own project as materials are not supplied.


  • Blacktown - Meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays in the Max Webber Library function centre (please note Thursday meetings in January will meet in the ground floor lounge area). Call 9839 6648 for more information.
