Cultural Centre, Perth: 23 reviews and 27 photos


In 1984 the new library building opened bringing together the disjointed buildings and annexes of the old library. The official opening of the new Alexander Library was in 1985. Inside the library is quite impressive with six floors for both staff and public use and large voids with bridges to allow access to the various sections of the library. There is also glass-fronted lifts for easy access for the disabled. There is also a bookshop which claims it will match any book store in the city as well as another bookshop selling used library books at a very good rate. The building cost $37.6 million and that excluded the cost of the carpark.

Open Times: 09.00am to 5.30pm Monday to Friday 09.00am to 9.45pm Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday 02.00pm to 5.30pm Saturday and Sunday
