Built over 100 years ago, the stone room (1900) was extended with a room added from Lennonville school (built 1898 closed 1924), with further rooms added 1940 and 1960. The historic school building was transformed into a central community hub after the primary school amalgamated with the secondary school in 1990. The library is located in Mount Magnet’s historic school building, on the corner of Attwood and Naughton Streets (behind Federation Park, across from the Shire Office), the Library provides an opportunity for locals and travellers alike to enjoy items of choice, be it a good book, DVD or an audio CD.

The library has a range of fiction and non-fiction books as well as ebooks, large print books, dvds and videos all available for loan. If we don’t have what you’re looking for on the shelves, please ask as we can order items from the State Library collection.

If you have any queries please contact the Library Officer on 9963 4480 or email
