The Library was repurposed from a supermarket in 2010 with award-winning design by Dunn & Hillam Architects http://dunnhillam.com.au/junee-library. One of the comments on their site includes:
“I have to admit the Junee Library is one of the best I’ve ever seen. The design is simply stunning, from the exposed beams on the gabled roof to the Murrumbidgee rocks that feature in the flooring. Perhaps the cleverest aspect of the design is the environmental engine room, which not only reduce the council’s carbon footprint but also saves the council 75% on its energy bills.”
The Junee Library is a branch of the Riverina Regional Library Service. Other branches include Adelong, Ariah Park, Batlow, Cootamundra, Culcairn, Gundagai, Henty, Talbingo, Temora, Tumut and Wagga Wagga. A mobile library serves many district towns including Ardlethan, Coolamon, Lockhart, Uranquinty, Cookardinia and Tarcutta.
Copies of most recent annual reports are available on the RRL website.
