Library indoor garden works

Posted Friday 26 October 2018

Barry O’Keefe Library will be receiving some much-anticipated renovations and repairs.

The beloved civic facility will be recarpeted throughout, receive patchwork painting and repairs where needed and undergo vital roof rectification works. Additionally we will see the currently unusable outside space on the lower floor converted to a tranquil indoor garden reading and study zone.

While the library will remain open during this time there will be periods of noise disruption – sometimes mild to moderate and other times significant – with some sections of the library closed intermittently.

The lower floor reading and study area will be closed in the post-HSC period to accommodate a site office but access will be maintained to the Mosman Room (Local Studies), meeting rooms and computers.

Further updates will be provided on this website and in signage around the library as the work progresses.

Thank you for your patience while we work to make our library a functional and beautiful space for community learning.
