Bentleigh Library and Youth Hub

Proposed Concept designs for the Bentleigh Library and Youth Hub

The draft concept design for the upgrade of Bentleigh Library is open for public consultation and we would like to hear your feedback and ideas.


The aim of the project is to incorporate the Bentleigh Library and adjacent Youth Centre into one community building and re-design the building to integrate services and provide new community spaces.


The new concept design for the site includes a new forecourt area at the entry of the building; flexible programming space, recording and editing suite; community training room; mix of lounge and study options, a new teen lounge and a new internal courtyard.


The key community benefits associated with the proposed concept design is a new forecourt at the entry of the building, an increase in spaces of value to young people; significant increase in spaces for public programs and expanded independent study areas.
