Redevelopment of Mitcham Memorial Library

Plans to Redevelop Mitcham Memorial Library Begin

The City of Mitcham is redeveloping the Mitcham Memorial Library to create an engaging space that caters for the changing needs of our community. 

The Library, located at Soldier’s Memorial Reserve on Belair Road in Hawthorn, was originally built in 1965 to provide library services to the local community. 

The new design is modern and sleek embracing the view of the reserve and Brown Hill Creek to provide a modern spaces and resources for all ages. Most importantly it will also double in size from its current size of 776m2 to 1476m2 over the next 12 months. 

Key design features of the Mitcham Memorial Library include:

  • more activity and better designed event spaces
  • meeting rooms for the community available after hours
  • an integrated Toy Library
  • zoned spaces such as quiet lounges for reading, quiet study areas, public computer access and printing facilities and group discussion point areas
  • a library space that is accessible to everyone
  • a dedicated youth space
  • an outdoor deck overlooking the reserve and creek
  • additional seating
  • improved carparking

The redevelopment, funded by the City of Mitcham and a grant of $1.09 million from the State Local Government Infrastructure Partnership Program, will begin at the end of 2017. 

Our community can look forward to the redeveloped Library opening late 2018.
