Dural Library is an important social and educational hub, where residents can learn, grow and continue to feel inspired.

That is why The Hills Shire Council is undertaking renovations to ensure it meets the current and future needs of the community.  

On completion, the renovated library will have updated spaces for reading and learning, with new carpets, shelving and a paint lift, as well as contemporary blinds and ergonomic furniture.

The library renovation has been made possible thanks to a $93,000 grant from the NSW Government and The Library Council of NSW. Council also made a $160,000 investment into the much-loved community facility.

“Dural Library is an important place – for families, students, book lovers and people of all ages,” Mayor of the Hills Shire, Dr Michelle Byrne said.

“I want to thank the NSW Government and The Library Council of NSW for their generous contribution, which will be used to modernise this wonderful local asset.

“I’m looking forward to seeing all the work that has been planned for this popular space come to fruition, as well as welcoming residents back into the renewed library real soon,” Mayor Byrne added.

During renovations, Dural Library will be closed from Monday 29th April and will reopen on Tuesday 11th June.

Library members will be able to borrow items from the Pop-up Library, which is temporarily operating out of The Dural Recreation Centre - located next door to Dural Library.

The Pop-up will operate within limited hours from Wednesday 1st May. 

For opening hours and details of services available during this time please visit Council’s website (www.thehills.nsw.gov.au) and search “library”.

Online library services will continue as usual, as will all other Hills Shire library branches.
