Opening of temporary library at Council Administrative Centre.

Broken Hill City Council’s (BHCC) Administrative Centre is where you’ll now find council’s Customer Service department and the temporary city library, which reopened ahead of schedule this week with doors opening to the public at 10am on Thursday.

The library service has been moved to Council’s Administrative Centre at 240 Blende St to allow for work on a new library to begin mid-year, with the reopening also sees Customer Service return to the Administrative Centre after months of operating from the Visitor Information Centre.

BHCC General Manager, Jay Nankivell, said the reopening would be welcomed by both staff and residents alike.

“From a service delivery perspective, it’s great to have the library back up and running and our Customer Service back in the Administrative Centre,” he said.

“The library is so important for local families and community groups, and we want to again thank all our library users for their patience as we got this temporary library up and running,” Mr Nankivell said.

The new library project is funded by the NSW government, federal government, and BHCC, with construction expected to start mid-2024 and to take around 18 months.
