Our Library


The library is located in Mount Magnet's historic school building, on the corner of Attwood and Naughton Streets.

Built over 100 years ago, the stone room (1900) was extended with a room added from Lennonville school (built 1898 closed 1924), with further rooms added 1940 and 1960.  The historic school building was transformed into a central community hub after the primary school amalgamated with the secondary school in 1990. This building houses the Library, Youth Centre, OP Shop and Meeting Room. [The Meeting Room is available for hire. To book, please contact the Shire Office 9963 3000.]

The library has a range of fiction and non-fiction books as well as books on cd, large print books, dvds and videos all available for loan. If we don’t have what you’re looking for on the shelves, please ask as we can order items from the State Library collection.

We also provide a range of second-hand books which are available to buy or swap, a great service for residents and visitors alike.

The library provides computer and internet access. Internet access is charged at $2.00 per 15 minutes, computer access is free for the first hour and $2.00 for each subsequent hour.
