Brisbane City Council delivered a new Everton Park Library that better meets the needs of the local community and the city’s growing population. The new library design is a contemporary facility which suits Brisbane’s climate, landscape and lifestyle. Strategically located next to the Everton Park Bowls Club, Fallon Cottage and Fallon Park, the new library will contribute to a thriving precinct that services the broader community.


The Everton Park Library opened at 561 South Pine Road in 1965. The last major refurbishment was completed in 1993-94. Customer research has highlighted the need for increased parking, improvements to accessibility, increased size, better use of space and increased connection to the outdoors.

The building design has incorporated a number of sustainable initiatives including energy efficient lighting and air conditioning systems; the siting, orientation and form of the building has been designed to minimise solar penetration into the building during summer while maximising solar penetration in winter. Roofwater is also collected by tanks to be used for landscape and irrigation purposes. Solar panels from the old library building were also removed and reused at Council’s Warra Animal Rehoming Centre.

Project timing

Construction began in January 2023 and was completed in March 2024. The new library is set to open on Saturday 9 March 2024.

Temporary library

Library services were temporarily relocated to Fallon Cottage for the duration of construction.
