City Libraries is a highly popular, visible and integral Council service which is valued by the community. Services to a community of 556,000 residents are provided through a network of 13 branch libraries, a Local Studies Library at Southport, a mobile library, a special needs library at Nerang, a corporate library and on-line via the internet.
Our libraries are hybrid environments where knowledge and culture is not just downloaded but also uploaded. They are incubator spaces where inspired ideas are developed, collaborated, instigated and shared.
Gold Coasters visit the library 2.8 million times each year, borrow 5.3million items and attend 6,100 library events.
Helensvale is located in the northern region of the Gold Coast and serves an immediate community of 63,000. On such a constrained site our ask for the facility was high. The Helensvale Library and Cultural Centre meets the demand from local residents for state-of-the-art library and cultural facilities.
It provides new opportunities for arts and cultural participation by providing the community with access to much needed cultural, recreation, events, conferences and performance spaces delivering a consistently changing library value proposition.
