Castlemaine Library under construction

Castlemaine Library has been undergoing renovation works since July 2019 as part of its successful grant application in the 2018 Pick My Project Initiative.

Work has included upgrading the structural flooring throughout the library and replacing old shelving with new, mobile shelving that will allow the space to be more accessible and flexible.

The upgrade has cost approximately $420,000, with the Victorian Government contributing $197,400 and Mount Alexander Shire Council contributing $226,400.

Construction is almost complete. The last day the library will be open at the Market Building is Tuesday 12 November.

The library will close from Wednesday 13 November – Tuesday 19 November inclusive, to allow the move back. It will re-open to the public on Wednesday 20 November at 10am.

The return chute will be open.
