The new Mills Park Library in Beckenham will be open for business from 9am on Monday 18 July.

Mayor Terresa Lynes said the new library was a vibrant and modern space, designed with an emphasis on technology.

Visitors to the library will be able to enjoy access to loans, public computers and Wi-Fi, study and reading areas. Community programs will also be available inside the library and in other rooms at the Mills Park Centre, starting with Story Time and Toddler Time.

“Library members will benefit from the new library’s location at the heart of the Mills Park Centre, alongside existing facilities including a children’s nature play area, function rooms, a skate plaza, tennis courts, sports fields and a popular café,” Mayor Lynes said.

This $1 million project includes $540,000 funded by the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communication through the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program, as part of the Australian Government’s plan to stimulate local economies and assist recovery from the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Mills Park library will be open seven days a week:

  • Monday, Tuesday and Thursday 9am – 6pm
  • Wednesday 9am – 7pm
  • Friday 9am – 5pm
  • Saturday and Sunday 9am – 1pm

Kenwick residents will shortly receive an upgraded community centre at the former Kenwick Library site.
