Belconnen Library

The Belconnen Library is the primary public library servicing the Belconnen district, one of ten libraries in the ACT Library and Information Services network, and one of two in Belconnen, the other being Kippax Library.

Built on the site of the former Emu Bank homestead, the Belconnen Library, designed by Robin Gibson, was opened by Sir Zelman Cowan, Governor-General of Australia in September 1981. [http://www.belconnen.org.au/belhist.htm] The building subsequently won Gibson the RAIA 1982 Canberra Medallion for a work of outstanding merit in the non-housing category.
