Anzac Day, 25 April, is one of Australia’s most important national occasions. It marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War, and is a chance for all Australians to take part in a day of national remembrance.
The CSU Campus Libraries will have changed opening hours on Anzac Day, which can be viewed on our Opening Hours webpage. The Dubbo, Orange and Port Macquarie Library collections are accessible 24/7 for CSU students and staff, just use your CSU Card to borrow at the self-check machines. The 24/7 spaces at Wagga, Albury and Bathurst will be accessible, while the Library collections at these campuses will be open between 1.30 and 5pm.
If you would like to spend Anzac Day investigating Australia’s wartime history, the Library has some great eBooks available to read, including:
