History

Gordonvale Library serves the community of Gordonvale and its surrounds. The municipal library in Gordonvale was opened on February 19, 1954.  The library replaced the old School of Arts which was built in 1900. At the time, it was the "main library" for Mulgrave Shire Council. It consisted of two outdoor reading rooms, one for adults and one for children.

In 1996 a Council Customer Service Office, meeting room and Councillor's office were added to the front of the library. Residents can still pay their rates, dog registrations and water rates at the Office and also make any other Council enquiry.

The library was fully refurbished and upgraded in 2016/17 featuring a new circulation desk, upgraded Council Customer Service Office, new meeting room, additional technology and more spacious and inviting places.
