As part of its upgrades, the library now includes roving library assistance and RFID Smart Shelving to make returning items faster and simpler.

Other improvements to the library include special study zones with new comfortable benches and booths with power and WiFi throughout. Because of this, connecting and recharging at the library is easier.

Kids are also bound to have more fun at the new children’s space in the library.

Furthermore, the addition of new informal lounge areas, chairs, and coffee tables give visitors more spaces to relax and unwind.

“Public libraries are lifeblood to learning, promoting reading, nurturing and knowledge so it’s important the community has the chance to experience these opportunities in a comfortable and relaxed environment,” Councillor for Division 9 Mike Charlton said when he first announced the renovation in June 2018.

“In the past year the Albany Creek Library has welcomed more than 100,000 residents and visitors through its door. I know the community along with local groups will be really excited to see this space come to life with a fresh look,” Cr Charlton said.

With the completion of the modernisation upgrades, Albany Creek Library now offers an abundance of modern spaces that aims to connect, inspire, and engage.
