Once completed, the Library will overlook Ferguson Park and, at 1000 square-metres, will be double the size of the current library with state-of-the-art borrowing technology, free wi-fi, a vibrant children’s library, dedicated quiet room, a coffee cart and two meeting rooms with secure after-hours access which will be used for our world-class library programs or for community meetings.The new building will also feature an undercover car park, lift and ramp to ensure it is accessible for people of all ages and abilities, and will also include the Bracken Ridge ward office.
