Major improvement works at the Dingley Village Library and Harold Box Hall will take place in 2019 to deliver fantastic new community facilities.
- Upgraded library
- New outdoor space
- Improved community meeting rooms
- New kiosk / kitchen & reception areas
- New Maternal and Child Health rooms
The $3.2m project has been funded by Kingston Council and the Victorian Government's Living Libraries fund.
Construction will take place throughout 2019 and will cause some disruptions as the significant improvement works are underway.
How will services be impacted?
Dingley Village Library will be shut during 2019. We'll be closing for our usual Christmas Break on 17th December and won't return until our fantastic new library is unveiled in approximately 12 months.
