I am looking to have a Private Teams site where members can contribute to a document library. I want the corresponding Sharepoint site to be viewable by all authenticated users.

Currently when I create a private team site the corresponding Sharepoint site cannot be accessed by non members.

If I create the Private Team then go to Sharepoint and change permissions to public the Team now becomes public also.

Again, I need a private team site for contributors and a public (any authenticated user) Sharepoint site.

You can add 'Everyone except external users' to the SharePoint Online site with View only permission. This can be done via Gear icon in the upper right -> Site Permissions -> Invite People -> Share Site Only.
