The City of Armadale's Seville Grove Library will be closing from noon on Saturday 23 June 2018 to commence upgrades to the building.
The redevelopment of the neighbouring Champion Centre and upgrades to the Seville Grove Library were made possible through a $4 million grant from Lotterywest following the outcome of a feasibility study, undertaken by the City as part of the master planning for the Bob Blackburn Reserve.
Mayor Henry Zelones OAM, JP said it is anticipated the rejuvenated library will reopen in autumn 2019 providing an improved building design with flexible space for customers.
“The upgrades will include improved meeting spaces for community use and additional computer facilities with a view to increase training opportunities, and improve literacy and job readiness in the community.
Like the Armadale and Kelmscott Libraries, the renovated facility will combine the best of what technology has brought to modern-day libraries with the services of a traditional library. It will be a trusted space, open to all, where people come to explore and share the joys of reading, information, knowledge and culture.
“During this period we encourage patrons to use the services of the Armadale and Kelmscott Libraries, where they will see the familiar faces of the Seville Grove Library staff.
“We appreciate the community's patience during the temporary closure, and we are looking forward to welcoming both old and new members to the library when it reopens,” said Mayor Zelones.
