  • Work to refurbish the Tote

    over 3 years ago

    Work has now started on the upgrade to the Green Square Library and Customer Service Centre, the ‘Tote’.

    The Tote at 100 Joynton Avenue in Zetland is an important community hub, and we’re improving the building to make it accessible for everyone.

    A new lift will provide access to the second and third floors. These floors will be fitted out for a range of community uses, such as arts and crafts, meetings, classes and seminars and gentle exercise. These renovated spaces will have kitchen facilities.

    The ground floor public space will be reconfigured, enlarging the reading room and computer area.

    Work has now started on the upgrade to the Green Square Library and Customer Service Centre, the ‘Tote’.

    The Tote at 100 Joynton Avenue in Zetland is an important community hub, and we’re improving the building to make it accessible for everyone.

    A new lift will provide access to the second and third floors. These floors will be fitted out for a range of community uses, such as arts and crafts, meetings, classes and seminars and gentle exercise. These renovated spaces will have kitchen facilities.

    The ground floor public space will be reconfigured, enlarging the reading room and computer area. 

    The renovations have been planned to respect the heritage value of the building and work will comply with heritage guidelines. Work will start in October and should finish by early 2014.

    Open for business

    During the renovations, your library and customer service will remain open. However, we will have to reduce some services and the building may be a little noisier than usual.

    The book collection will be reduced, but you’ll still be able to order books from other branches, return books and enjoy the magazines and papers. A computer will be available as well as wifi, but the number of desks will be reduced. Customer Service can still look after most of your customer needs, except for busking permits, the onsite planner and JP services.

    For a quieter spot to study or work during the renovations, visit the closest alternate library:

    Waterloo Library, 770 Elizabeth Street Open: Monday to Thursday (10am–6pm), Friday (10am–5pm) and Saturday (11am–4pm).

    The closest alternate customer service centre is:

    Redfern Neighbourhood Services Centre, 158 Redfern Street Open: Monday to Friday (9am–5pm) and Saturday (9am–noon).
