But dry those eyes because later in August  in early September [updated 19/9/14], at the corner of Wentworth Parade and Beeliar Drive, a magnificent “state of the art” library will open. And what a library! Just to give you a taste, here are some juicy facts:

  • The new library will be some seven times larger than the existing shopfront library.
  • Expect over 300,000 visitors per year.
  • Increased opening hours.
  • over 1.6 km of book shelving.
  • Over 30,000 books.
  • 18 new internet access PCs.
