OPENING TIMES: Saturday 11th November 10am-4pm
Sunday 12th November 12pm-4pm
ADDRESS: 573 Hay Street, Perth
The City of Perth Library, designed by Kerry Hill Architects, sits at the heart of Perth's redeveloped Cathedral Square precinct. The Library is a brand new, vibrant, community hub with a distinctive cylindrical form and is a highlight on the OHP 2016 destination list.
The Library is the first major civic building built by the City of Perth for over 40 years, with a distinctive diagonal truncation that allows winter sun to enter the plaza area. Its 3,500 square metres of floor area features a triple-storey reading room, defined collection spaces, AV/multi function meeting rooms, a green wall, a double-height winter garden for the children’s area and a generous terrace with stunning views.
Public libraries are changing the way they operate, reinventing spaces and services to reflect changing demographics, public perceptions and usage.
