Sandgate Library upgrade

Brisbane City Council will commence works to upgrade the Sandgate Library in September 2019.

This project will take place at the existing Sandgate Library, located in the Sandgate Town Hall, 1 Seymour Street, Sandgate.

About the project

The works will include:

  • reconfiguration of the existing spaces to create a new reading lounge, children's library and efficient back-of-house area
  • internal refresh of the interiors with new wall painting, carpet, drinking fountain, furniture and shelving
  • installation of new external library signage.

Construction impacts

Safe access to the library will be maintained throughout construction, with some internal barricading in place around the construction areas while works are completed. Sandgate Library is expected to remain open with some reduced services during construction. Advance notification of out-of-hours works, noisy works, or major access changes will be provided to local residents and patrons.

Where required, some on-street parking may be temporarily closed during these works. On-street parking will be available for library patrons in the surrounding streets during construction.

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 out-of-hours work, library closures, noisy works, or major access changes will be provided to properties within the works area.

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