The plaza will be an urban living room at the heart of Green Square's commercial precinct, surrounded by high density residences and shops. It will be a place to meet up, hang out, relax and contemplate or get involved in library activities and community events. Download the plan for the plaza.
We'd love to know your ideas on using the plaza at night. What will make it fun, active and a safe place to be?

We know that libraries in the 21st century are as full of technology as they are with books and newspapers. The design features a connecting tower building with four levels of multipurpose technology space with a rooftop outdoor reading area.
Let us know what technology you'd like to see in the new library at Green Square - and don't forget about what you'll need outdoors in the plaza as well.
