A new chapter in the Warrnambool Library tale

News date:

The Warrnambool Library is on the move!

The current library at 25 Liebig Street will close on Saturday October 1 to allow for the transport of books and equipment to the new Warrnambool Library and Learning Centre on the South West TAFE campus which will open on Monday October 10.

Anyone who has borrowed books from now is asked to please return them by the end of this month or otherwise hold on to them and return them to the new library. No items will be due back during the closed week and reserved books will be held until after the new library opens.

“It’s quite a logistics operation taking all the books off the shelves in order and moving them to their new shelves in the new building – in order, and it will take a full week, however as library members can borrow up to 30 items at a time hopefully no-one will run out of something to read over the closed week,” Warrnambool City Council Chief Executive Officer Peter Schneider said.

“We thank you for your patience and understanding during the move and look forward to welcoming you to Warrnambool’s exciting new, fully accessible library.”
