Shellharbour library named best in Australia


Shellharbour City Library has won the prestigious Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) Public Library Design Awards 2019.

It was one of four libraries short-listed in the public libraries category, and the only one in NSW.

The prestigious awards recognised some of the best new library designs in Australia.

The award comes just months after the Shellharbour City Museum won a Museums and Galleries NSW Imagine Award for best New Build in the ‘Capacity Building, Capital & Sustainability Programs’ category.
