Mount Gambier Library And Cultural Precinct

Centrally located in what has become the Cultural Precinct in the heart of Mount Gambier, the new library has been instrumental in enlivening and invigorating this regional city to become a learning community. This is a life long activity and a source of individual, social and community strength.

The Mount Gambier Library is the people place because it has been embraced by the community through a four fold increase in visitation, increases in loans, participation in programs and increased awareness of the services offered by the Library. It is OUR PLACE.

This project received Commendations for Collaborative Design and Interior Architecture from the Australian Institute of Architects SA Chapter and the inaugural Adelaide Review Peoples Choice Award in 2010. It also received the Jim Crawford Award for Library Innovation in 2012.
