Moe Service Centre and Frank Bartlett Memorial Library
Project completed: 09/06/2016
The Moe library is one of four libraries in the Latrobe Regional Library service. With a collection size of 40,000, it was relocated to the new building from its previous small building at the eastern end of the town centre. The new facility was to accommodate both the current collection, and the collection from the former Yallourn library, identified by the State Library as having historic significance. The Yallourn collection required a research room and compactus in the new library, to house light sensitive material.
The library service provides several story time sessions a week for preschoolers, babies and toddlers. It is colocated with a cafe (soon to be fitted out), community health consulting rooms, public bookable meeting rooms, a community kitchen and a council service desk and call centre. It provides lounge spaces for longer visits, as a destination for varied activities, not previously possible in the previous Moe library.
