Dalyellup Library Moves to a New Home

Exciting times are ahead for Dalyellup residents, who will be treated to a new library after Council approved a seven-year lease at the Dalyellup Shopping Centre.

Chief Executive Officer Paul Sheedy said the new library was the next step to meet ongoing population growth in Dalyellup and enable staff to deliver more services to the community.

“We identified that the existing location is not big enough, so we have taken the next step to ensure our facilities and services meet the growth of the area,” he said.

“This is an interim move until we get a new purpose-built library in Dalyellup.”

Community Services Manager Jeremy O’Neill said the new space, located on the southern entrance, opposite the small playground, would open in July.

He said it was at least double the size of the existing library at Gosse Way and the new library would provide significant social benefits to the Dalyellup community.

These include:

  • Improved physical access for people with disabilities and mobility issues;
  • Increased opportunities for new services, such as access to public Wi-Fi;
  • Increased adult programming opportunities such as book visits, author talks and adult education classes; and
  • Increased programming opportunities for children, such as increased participation capacity for programs such as rhyme time, story time and school holiday programs.
