Located in a room above Burland Hall in King Street, Newtown Library opened in 1986 as a branch of the City of Sydney Library. The library was established following the decision by Marrickville Library to close its Newtown branch due to budgetary constraints.

City Librarian at the time, Sarah Walters, seized upon one of the only available spaces in the area to establish a new South Sydney Council library in Newtown. In 1995, Newtown Library re-opened in a larger building known as the Salvation Army Citadel. Originally built in 1883, the building underwent major renovations to house the library.

Newtown Library was tranferred to the City of Sydney in February 2004.
