Sneak previews of the new Bairnsdale Library



The view of the plaza and main entrance from Service Street.



Public access will also be from the lane on the western side of the building.



As you pass through the main entrance, the reception desk and rear entrance are directly ahead.  An amazing staircase leads to the balcony above and to study areas, the local collection, a training/meeting room and staff workroom.



To the right of the stairs is the children's area.  Beyond that is a glass elevator and the main collection area.  The internal brickwork in this image is the existing south wall of the old Mechanics' Hall.



This is the view from the reception desk looking south east towards meeting room 1 which projects into the forecourt.  A kitchen area with coffee making facilities is in the foreground.



The study desks on the balcony have a view down into the children's area and beyond into the forecourt.
