“Great place to visit if you are time poor”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014

As the name suggested it is both library and museum. We spent at least an hour going through the museum. It has some interesting local history.

“Excellent resource”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

Love the architecture, design and "presence" the library has, the elevation is modern and provocative. Inside has been well done and the help desk is excellent. I love the way the shelves have been organized and the books presented. It is a pleasure to browse and borrow books. Also love the effort that goes into the displays and special presentations the staff organize. Well done yet again Albury....a great resource and facility all round!

“Lovely, modern library”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013

The Library Museum is great. Quiet, cool and spacious. There is a kids area with pillows and beanbags, a computer area, lots of magazines and newspapers and of course books!
The attached museum is small but the displays change from time to time. The displays at the museum are often good/ interesting for kids.

“Always open and good to spend time in”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2013

Whether I drop into the Museum just on an off chance driving past and wanting to spend a little bit of time reading, or I come on purpose to visit an exhibition at the Museum it is always welcoming and has something to offer. It is essential to have a facility such as this located centrally and it fulfill a multitude of roles. The Museum part is great to spend time in, especially if you take kids that can always learn something new...
