Countdown to a new chapter for Midland Public Library

Published on: Wednesday, November 22, 2023

Midland Public Library is set to reopen on Helena Street, Midland on January 2, 2024 after the completion of careful repair works.

The library was closed in 2021 due to structural issues with its roof, resulting in a move to the temporary pop-up library at 11 The Avenue, Midland.

The pop-up library will be closed from Monday, December 11, allowing for the relocation of books and equipment.

The return to 45 Helena Street, Midland will mark an exciting new chapter for the beloved library.

Tanya Richardson, City of Swan Mayor, said staff were excited to welcome the community back.

“Great care has been taken to ensure the building is safe for use,” Mayor Richardson said.

“The reopening of the library is great news for the community and I look forward to being there in the new year.”

There will be no change to the programs that have been running at Old Midland Courthouse.

The City’s online library services will remain available 24/7.
