& O’Duffy Library
Tattersall’s Business Centre provides Members with a quiet, private space to work and
the O’Duffy Library is a professional sanctuary for enjoying the day’s papers with a
beverage and some sandwich points.
Members are welcome to drop in to the Business
Centre any time between 8.30am and 5pm to use
the computer and printing facilities, to plug in a
laptop, or access a charging station. Bookings are
not required. Regular users report that the Business
Centre is a productive space to work in when
travelling for work or in between client meetings
in the CBD.
A variety of breakout spaces and meeting rooms
are available for hire when you need to collaborate
at length with colleagues.
Please keep in mind that Tattersall’s adheres
to a low-technology policy meaning Members
are asked to keep electronic devices on silent or
vibrate. Calls can be made or taken in the Business
Centre, the O’Duffy Library hallway and balcony,
or on the North Balcony on Level 2 if not in use,
and in the lift lobbies. If in doubt, please ask a staff
member for guidance on appropriate locations for

For brief and informal meetings, the O’Duffy
Library offers an intimate yet professional setting.
Members can order light meals and beverages
to be served in the Library from either the Healy
Room menu until 10am, then after that from the
Members’ Bar menu.
The origin of the Tattersall’s Library is that it
started on the mezzanine floor providing mostly
newspapers, magazines and turf books from the
past and present. Today the stacks on Level 1 hold
more than 1,200 fiction and non-fiction titles, from
the recently published to rare and vintage books.
Added to this are daily papers plus periodicals
from local, interstate and international sources.
In the evenings, the Library is the perfect room to
host an event as its balcony overlooks the Queen
Street Mall. The Library balcony is also equipped
with a barbeque for relaxed gatherings, which the
Club staff can organise for small to medium groups.
