Diamond Valley Library upgrade

The Diamond Valley Library is undergoing a major upgrade funded through the State Government’s Living Libraries Infrastructure Program, Nillumbik Shire Council and the Yarra Plenty Regional Library Service.

The library was built in 1984 and extended in 1993, but since then there have been significant global changes in how libraries are used and the use of technology, and local community needs.

Works have now commenced and due to be complete by June 2021.

Some of the following items that were considered are;

  • Extended children’s zone to meet the needs of young families using the library.
  • Tech Area for the delivery of STEAM (Science, Technology, Environment, Arts and Maths)/Maker activities and for people to connect with new technology.
  • New community meeting room with kitchen facilities.
  • New co-working zone for micro-businesses and budding entrepreneurs with a space for training, workshops and to brainstorm.
  • New community zone welcoming young and old to collaborate, read and study with their peers
  • New outdoor deck area and café area
  • New accessible unisex toilets

The addition of an outdoor decked area, extending into the current community garden, will encourage connection of the community, especially children, with nature, fresh food and healthy living.

This connection will be extended to the new community meeting room that will have kitchen facilities and provide a much needed community meeting facility for local residents and groups.
