Queenscliff Library has re-opened

Monday 26 September 2022

We are delighted to let you know that library services have resumed from the new Queenscliff Library (55 Hesse Street) as of Monday 26 September.

Ceremonies to officially open Wirrng Wirrng (Queenscliffe Hub) will take place soon, and we look forward to celebrating this momentous occasion. The Hub will be a multi-use community facility that brings the Queenscliffe Historical Museum, Queenscliffe Visitor Information Centre and Queenscliff Library under one roof.

The project is supported by funding from the Australian Government, Regional Infrastructure Fund and Community Support Fund, the Victorian Government's Living Libraries Program, and the Borough of Queenscliffe.

The new library is light filled with modern furnishing and more areas to study, work or read. The Hub features a flexible auditorium providing space for programs, events, and community groups.

The much-loved heritage façade of the library has been preserved and celebrated as part of the design. For the new areas of the Hub, a modern, interactive facade complements the heritage library by reflecting the nearby building and providing uninterrupted views through to the garden at the rear of the building.

Programs including early literacy programs and author talks will resume after the school holidays.

We are glad to be able to welcome you back to the library and look forward to seeing our members and communities back in the library soon.
