St Kilda library is the flagship branch of the Port Phillip Library Service and a key venue for library, cultural and social programs and services. Opened in 1973 and with original design by the 2007 RAIA Gold Medal architect Enrico Taglietti, it has historical, social, aesthetic and architectural significance and plays a central role in the fabric of the local community. A later extension to improve the library’s facilities was completed by Ashton Raggatt McDougall (ARM) in 1993. Today, St Kilda library is Port Phillip’s busiest and largest branch, averaging in excess of 31,000 visitors per month.
The venue is wheelchair accessible, through the main and the rear entrances. Please contact us if you have access requirements, or tell us your access requirements when you buy your tickets.
