Ashgrove Library upgrade

Brisbane City Council is pleased to advise works to upgrade the Ashgrove Library have started.

This project takes place at the existing Ashgrove Library site, located at 87 Amarina Avenue Ashgrove.

The works involve:

  • reconfiguring the existing spaces to create a new reading lounge, children’s library and more efficient back-of-house area
  • internal refresh of the interiors with new painting, flooring, lighting, a drinking fountain, furniture and shelving
  • replacement of the meeting room operable walls for improved sound attenuation
  • refreshing the building entry, including new signage, feature tiles and lighting
  • resurfacing of the concrete paths with a decorative finish.

Construction impacts

In order to allow construction activities to be undertaken safely, a temporary closure of Ashgrove Library will be required. The library will close at 4pm Saturday 26 October and re-open at 10am Monday 11 November 2019. Council apologises for any inconvenience this closure may cause. During this period, please visit Grange or Mitchelton libraries.

During this closure period, local residents and businesses may notice extra vehicle movements around the library. Where required, some on-street parking may be temporarily closed during the works. Every effort will be made to minimise disruption to the local community during this work.

Construction timing

Construction will take place between 7am and 5pm, Monday to Sunday, weather permitting.

Every effort will be made to minimise disruption to the local community during this work. Advance notification of particularly noisy works or major access changes will be provided to patrons and properties within the works area.

The project is expected to be completed by late 2019, weather and construction conditions permitting.
