The first children into the library, Merrick and her baby brother, loved the new tents in the Children’s Area.

I was a teacher for six years before becoming a Young People's Services Librarian. I taught everything from kindy to year seven and I'm really excited to be working towards greater early literacy with the children of Cockburn.

  1. Good morning !!
    So glad you are now open.. but…how do I enter building ? I need to use my ACROD parking permit, so
    where do I find this area and how difficult is it to find the Library ? I have driven around the
    building on a Sunday to try to find where you are and as there don’t appear to be any signs to tell
    one where you are I haven’t felt comfortable driving into the area when there is a lot of traffic
    unless I know where to find you!!
    Also, can you tell me where to find the new Success SKG Radiology branch?
    Many thanks,
    Frances

      Hi Frances,

      We are the shiny new building on the corner of Wentworth Parade and Beeliar Drive!

      You can enter the building three ways:
      1. Via the exterior ramp that can be accessed from the footpath that joins the Youth Centre to us.
      2. The external wheelchair lift accessed from the Southern direction off Wenthworth Parade. Parking is available there and there is also a drop off area.
      3. There is underground parking directly below the library that can be accessed from the Southern direction of Wentworth Parade. It can also be accessed by driving in via the one way road in front of Nochello’s Cafe and turning left towards the library building. The acrod parking is right at the entry to the lifts.

      SKG is located on the same floor as we are, just down the corridor.

      We hope to see you soon!

  2. Seeing the photo is almost as good as visiting in person to see my teepees in the library, thank you and I hope the children continue ti enjoy these quite spaces.

  3. Hi,
    After seeing yesterday’s blog post that the library was open and that it would be open until 7:00 pm, I came with my kids at 6:15pm to the new Library. The boys were all excited and full of anticipation, but unfortunately we could not get in – the doors were closed on the two sides we tried (Wentworth Parade side and the Youth Centre side). It was a bit of a dissapointment for the boys and some embarassment for me!

      Hi Chris,
      We’re sorry to hear that. We have had some technical issues with our doors which have now been fixed.
      We were definitely open and will be until 7pm Monday through Thursday so I hope you come back and see our wonderful library.
      We apologise for the disappointment and embarrassment caused.
      Regards,
      Jessica Donald
