A southern library full of style, books and air
The thrill of going to a library is a special one with new and old books waiting to unravel their stories, magazines with glossy pages and so much learning material you can use and have so much fun with. However, most libraries are state run facilities, which means they face the challenge of tight budgets, tired buildings and dated décor.
The Cove Civic Centre at Hallett Cove, has set the bar high for libraries, community centres and leisure hubs, with a $10 million building funded by City of Marion in conjunction with the Australian Government.
More than a civic centre, The Cove is a demonstration of modern architecture, featuring flowing spaces filled with natural light, comfortable furniture, high ceilings to allow air flow, ample parking and carefully selected reading material for adults and children.
This beautiful public space encourages learning and the love for reading in a calm, stylish and easy to access facility. Venue hire is available for both business and community activities. The Cove has been planned to suit the every need of the greater community: order books online or browse the shelves, wireless network and PC use, children's toy and book library, printing service, game consoles, a huge magazine collection, community information board and a small kitchen for public use.
