So we were in Hastings Street, Noosa Heads when I decided that I would rather go to the library than walk around here watching a lot of pretentious people with their fedora hats drinking cafe lattes and buying overpriced items! The Noosaville Library was my 6th library visit during a recent family road trip to Queensland – and yes we finally made it to the sunshine state!
Date and time of visit: Friday, 23 August 2019; 1.33pm
Features: Noosaville Library is a branch of the Noosa Library Service and offers traditional as well as digital library services. And yes this is another library that is opened 7 days a week – open on Sundays 10am – 2pm!
I saw plenty of emerging technology being used in this library for the benefit of clients as well as creating a streaming workflow for staff – from self-return shelves to a dedicated space for Makerspace workshops.
Overall impression: OMG! I salivated as soon as I walked into this library! I loved the architecture, the artwork peppered around the library and the overall ambience of the place. It really should be located in the Hastings Street drag. I can’t believe visitors to Noosa are missing out on this beautiful public institution. PS: Noosaville Library is about 8-10 minutes drive from the Noosa Heads tourist complex.
