History

Edmonton Library began life as a School of Arts. It was officially opened on 30 November, 1975 by the then, Mulgrave Shire Council. Since then, it has served the expanding population centres of Edmonton and adjacent localities such as Bentley Park.

The library was substantially upgraded in 2004 creating a more spacious and inviting reading area, children's area, and PC spaces. Bright new signage and improved shelving provided greater access to the library collection and the upgraded circulation desk enabled customers to be served more efficiently. The upgraded library was officially launched on 19th November 2004.
