Wangi Library Creative Hub, wanji wanji
Wangi Library Creative Hub, is the first in the Hunter Region to operate under a ‘community self-access’ model and be a co-located library and creative space.
The revamped library, is now open seven days a week with staffed hours and self-access from as early as 7am.
The hub includes spaces for artmaking and local exhibitions, improved areas for community gathering and workshops, and refreshed spaces for books and other items for loan.
Members over the age of 12 can apply for self-access in branch during staffed hours. This will enable access to the building during non-staffed hours, seven days a week. Members aged 12-17 will need permission from their legal guardian.
The creative space, including the enclosed back deck, can also be hired for art classes, creative workshops, children’s activities and much more.
Come to Wangi Library Creative Hub to read, relax and connect with your community.
