Springwood Library is currently being upgraded.

The $2.62 million redesign will transform Springwood Library into a modern, light-filled building with full glazing to the south façade, excellent views, plus quiet study areas and a fully accessible lift.

A Springwood Library Click & Collect Service is currently operating from the Blue Mountains Hub Dressing Room 2, at the rear of the building. Monday to Friday, 11am to 4pm. This is a collection point for reserved Library items only – please visit the Library Catalogue to place reserves. No vaccination required. Returns can be left in the returns bin to the rear of the building 24/7.

The new Springwood Library will open once construction finishes in 2022.

8/12/2021 UPDATE: Blue Mountains City Council has started a weekly library bus service to run between the Springwood and Blaxland Library branches, from 9 December for the duration of the ongoing refurbishment at Springwood. See News Feed for further details.

The Library in the Loft, located in the Blue Mountains Community Hub at Springwood will also reopen from 3 December.

The project will be funded under the Western Parkland City Liveability Program, which is part of the Western Sydney City Deal (WSCD). The WSCD is a 20 year-agreement between the Australian and NSW governments, and the eight local Councils of the Western Parkland City.

    Blue Mountains City Council has started a weekly library bus service to run between the Springwood and Blaxland Library branches, from 9 December for the duration of the ongoing refurbishment at Springwood.

    The service will run every Thursday, is free and does not require bookings. It will depart and return to the Blue Mountains Community Hub in Springwood, giving members approximately one hour at Blaxland Library.

    There will be two departure times each Thursday:

    • 9.45am, returning 11.15am
    • 10.30am, returning 12pm

    Until Public Health Orders change, everyone using the service and entering the Library must be fully vaccinated and will be required to check-in. We will have friendly Library staff on hand at Springwood to assist with all requirements.

    There will be no service on Thursday 30 December during the Library’s holiday closure period. Click here to read the media release.

    The next stage of the Springwood Library redevelopment is about to begin.

    The $2.62 million redesign will transform Springwood Library into a modern, light-filled building with full glazing to the south façade, excellent views, plus quiet study areas and a fully accessible lift.

    As it will take library staff time to safely pack up items for storage and transport, the library is to close well in advance of construction starting so the last day will be Saturday, 27 February 2021.

    On Monday 15 March, Springwood Library will launch ‘Library in the Loft’, located in Meeting Room 2 of the Hub and Customer Service will be available at the Hub Box Office on Monday to Friday, 9am to 12noon.
