Armidale War Memorial Library is moving to its new location at 182 Rusden Street over the next two weeks.

Time frames for the transition have shifted slightly.

If you are a current or potential library user, or if you are just keen to take a look at the new space, please note the new dates.

Armidale’s new library building will be fully operational from Monday 1 May 2017.

The community is invited to inspect the new building between 10am and 2pm on the originally scheduled opening day of 24 April.

Work scheduling has necessitated this change.

The current library building (at 122 Faulkner Street) will be open at the following times over the next fortnight

  • 10am-6pm on these days
    • Thursday 13 April
    • Tuesday 18 April
    • Wednesday 19 April
    • Thursday 20 April
    • Friday 21 April
    • Monday 24 April
  • 10am-1pm on this day
    • Saturday 22 April

The old library building will close at 6pm on Monday 24 April and removalists will transport its contents to 182 Rusden Street.

The new library building will reopen at 10am on Monday 1 May.  

Books can be returned while the library is closed through the chute in the front door of the old library at any time up to 6pm on Thursday 27 April.

After that time, there will be a similar chute opening available in the front wall of the new library at 182 Rusden Street.


Please contact the Library on 6770 3636 if you have any questions.
