Progress on the detailed design of a new green-star rated, district level library in Caloundra has been supported by Sunshine Coast Council. The library will be located within the refurbished council administration building, and also include various community meeting spaces, an integrated Customer Service Centre on the ground floor and council administration offices.

In line with Council’s Environment and Liveability Strategy, social infrastructure such as libraries and community meeting places are planned to meet the needs of the community – both today and into the future. This ensures council continues to meet its vision towards a more liveable Sunshine Coast to 2041.

The new library is anticipated to contribute to the ongoing vitality of Caloundra, and  deliver significant social, community and economic benefits, as well as supporting educational and creative development in our region. Establishing a new District Library in the heart of Caloundra’s Community and Creative Hub is also expected to play a major role in increasing activation of the centre for both the local and broader Sunshine Coast community.

The establishment of a new contemporary district library in the heart of the Hub is one part of a larger strategy which will create an integrated space connecting The Events Centre, a new Caloundra Regional Gallery, and the new Town Square, through to Bulcock Beach.
