Pop-up Library Opens in Lismore

Pop-up Library Opens in Lismore

After the popular Lismore Library was destroyed by the February natural disaster, a new temporary Pop-Up Library will open its Molesworth Street doors on Thursday.

Lismore City Mayor Steve Krieg said Council was determined to open a new temporary library while the permanent one in Magellan Street is rebuilt to bring a sense of normality for library users and community.

“We decided to open a temporary library because this service is very popular with our community,” he said.

“I would like to thank the Library staff who have worked extremely hard to make this possible, and especially the many volunteers who have helped to fill the shelves with more than 20,000 donated books.”

The Pop-Up Library at 146 Molesworth Street will provide access to the brand-new community donated collections, computers, printing, and a space to connect, discover and escape.

Lismore Area Librarian Michael Lewis said it was wonderful to have the library back in the CBD.

“This move, with the support of the Lismore City Council and General Manager John Walker strives to support the revitalisation of the Lismore CBD,” he said.

“The Lismore Library has over 20,000 items ready for the reopening. These donations and community support shows the meaning libraries have in their communities and will support the positive recovery for our library and our community.

“The library is a safe space for many, and by opening in the CBD, it will provide accessible services, collections, and programs for all in our community.

The Lismore Pop-Up Library is located at 146 Molesworth Street and is near parking, public facilities and local eateries and shops.

The library will be open 7 days a week at the following times:

  • Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday 
    9.30am – 5pm
  • Thursday
    9.30am – 7pm
  • Saturday
    9am – 1pm
  • Sunday
    1pm – 4pm

With the opening of the new CBD library, Goonellabah Library will have a change of opening hours. From December 1, the Goonellabah Library will be open:

  • Monday – Friday: 9.30am–5pm, closed from 12.30pm to 1.30pm daily.
