We're moving the library out of the old City Hall and into a purpose-built contemporary space, nearly double the size and over two levels. Enter from Greville Street to the new generation Claude Ullin* Library, a place of community an life-long learning.
Gone are the days when a library was just a place for books - our new library will be a place of gathering, socialising, relaxing, activity and learning. An inclusive space the whole community can enjoy.
The new library boasts dedicated spaces for reading, study, collaborating, engaging and for children's activities.
The original heritage reading room on the first floor will be reclaimed by the Claude Ullin Library. Heritage bookcases lining the walls will be put back into service and the impressive 30-metre long space, with its soaring ceilings, will be restored.
Throughout the library, period features will be revealed and integrated with modern design elements and conveniences, such as comfortable furnishings, air conditioning, quality lighting, and technology stations.
*The name of the new library, Claude Ullin, is currently being advertised in accordance with the City of Stonnington standard public building naming procedure.
