About the project

The Balwyn Library is used by 250,000 people every year. Library users told us they want a more comfortable, quiet space with more room and less clutter.

Our $8.9 million upgrade is transforming the Balwyn Library into a contemporary, attractive and appealing place. It will have:

  • more casual reading and study areas
  • more comfortable furniture
  • improved access to the collection with a better layout
  • a new, quiet study area that is separate from the rest of the library
  • a larger community meeting room, accessible after hours
  • better technology, including more efficient WiFi.

Construction began in early 2017.
