Seville Grove Library - Renovations
Work is continuing on the renovation of the Seville Grove Library building and interior, but the project has been delayed as the result of circumstances beyond our control.

The new completion date will be during October 2019. The renovated library will have a fresh new layout designed to encourage discovery and conversation, as well as two multipurpose meeting rooms and improved technology.

The City apologises for the ongoing inconvenience, and encourages all library patrons to continue to use services of the Armadale or Kelmscott libraries until we are able to reopen Seville Grove Library.
