The library is spacious, airy and very well laid out. We were just looking for the local newspapers, and were pleasantly surprised that we could enjoy a cuppa and a snack as we perused the paper.

I loved this library; lots to see on display - crocheted umbrellas, the beautiful embroidered banner done for Australia's bicentennary, even the layout of the place. Also staff went to considerable lengths to help me answer a question about the Town Hall.

Bendigo Library is extensive and now with a new modernist wing- part of the civic complex with the nearby town hall- it offers new architecture as a contrast to the old.
