Greater Hamilton Library Prepares to Move Home

21 February 2018

The Greater Hamilton Library will close the doors on its temporary home at the Hamilton Performing Arts Centre (PAC) this Friday as the refurbishment works near completion.

The Library will close at 5:30pm Friday 23 February and will reopen in the new-look building at 105 Brown St on Friday 2 March.
Library Coordinator Kelly Pitt-Lancaster said the week-long closure will allow for the mammoth task of moving the collection back into the building.

“We have a big job ahead of us to move back into the Library and we apologise for any inconvenience caused by our short closure. Items are able to be renewed online during this time and items can be returned through the returns chute.

“We are confident that our patrons will be pleased with our new look space and we know the changes we’ve made to the Library will significantly improve our ability to deliver quality library services to our community,” Ms Pitt- Lancaster said.

The refurbishment was made possible thanks to $121,000 in funding from the Victorian Government’s Living Libraries Infrastructure program. A new and vibrant space has been created, which enhances browsing and collection accessibility for library users and includes new flooring, mobile shelving, new service desk, improved staff space and the creation of a dedicated area for creative play.

The re-opening celebrations will commence at 10:30am on Friday 2 March with patrons invited to attend the official ribbon cutting and morning tea. Activities will continue throughout the day with giveaways, overdue fines amnesty and tours of the new space on offer.
