Newtown Library

Newtown Library is located just off cosmopolitan King Street in an historic building known as the Salvation Army Citadel, built in 1883. The library is hugely popular with locals, students and families. It has a mezzanine level for events and regular children’s programs, as well as a dedicated kids’ corner for young readers on the ground floor.

Mapping Community, a line-art illustration capturing the rich community spirit of Newtown, spans the length of the glass on the mezzanine level overlooking the ground floor.
