Penrith Library gets a facelift

Penrith Library gets a facelift

Wednesday, 6 February 2019

Change is afoot at Penrith Library. Since late last year, Penrith City Council has been working to modernise the facility.

The library has been a community hub for students, researchers and bibliophiles since it opened in 1993. The updated facilities include smarter borrowing systems, training spaces for community workshops, additional study desks, expanded quiet zones and a new and improved local history research room. 

The works have been staged so that the Library will remain open as usual but during the upgrade there will be changes to how the space looks and the facilities available. From 11 February to 10 March, access to the reference collection, public computers, internet and photocopying will be unavailable, however these services continue to be available at the St Marys and St Clair branches. 

With the facelift due for completion in March, Library members can look forward to a better experience with improved Wi-Fi connectivity, resume writing and tech support classes and updated spaces for leisure reading, study and research. 

Library membership is free and available to all residents.
