The new City of Perth Library at 573 Hay St opened on Tuesday 1 March 2016.

The multi-level Library is located next to the Perth Town Hall, fronting Hay Street, and is accessible from St Georges Terrace via the Cathedral Square precinct. It is the first major civic building to be constructed since the Perth Concert Hall was built nearly 45 years ago.

Conveniently located in the heart of the City, the Library is used by residents, City workers, students, tourists, visitors and shoppers.

The Library building covers 3,500 square metres and is revealed over seven levels. Visitors can explore the Library’s ceiling artwork, bookable rooms, cafe, function spaces, outdoor terrace and zones for young adults and families. The Library offers fiction and non-fiction book collections, DVDs, magazines, newspapers and a host of online resources.

The City of Perth Library provides a true sense of place, with opportunities for community interaction as well as quiet and reflective spaces.
