Library to open in May Image

Docklands will soon have a new community facility, with the Library at the Dock nearing completion and expected to open next month.

According to a City of Melbourne spokesperson, construction of the building has now reached practical completion and the next step is the internal fit-out of the facility.

This stage will include the installation of shelving, books, furniture, signage and connection of the IT systems.

Delivered through a partnership between the City of Melbourne, Lend Lease and Places Victoria, the library will provide a range of services and facilities for the local community.

“Once completed, Library at the Dock will be the civil and cultural centrepiece of Victoria Harbour and is currently on track to be opened in May, along with the adjacent urban park,” a council spokesperson said.

“An opening day event is being planned to showcase the Library’s state-of-the-art digital collection, performance spaces and interactive learning facilities.”

According to the spokesperson, the highlight of the opening event would be the inaugural City of Melbourne literature oration, which would be presented by a special guest author.

“Docklands residents will be invited to listen and ask questions at an engaging presentation, exploring the topic of what makes Melbourne one of the great literary cities of the world – a UNESCO City of Literature,” the spokesperson said.

The Library at the Dock and the adjoining Dock Square are expected to open in May.

Places Victoria, the City of Melbourne and Lend Lease will also deliver the nearby  family services and boating hub.
