The Sydenham Library Community Centre includes facilities for both library and neighbourhood house. The centre is a fitout of approximately 1300m2 on the First Floor of the town centre shopping district and opposite the train station. This proximity to transport and other activities provides a central point for community access. The vision for the fitout was to create a welcoming community feeling for the Centre and to turn what was originally an office space into a dynamic community space. The Centre includes a number of large multifunction program spaces, meeting spaces and breakout space for community use. It also houses the Sydenham Library group computer area for both interactive and group learning and a computer lab. This is supported by the library staff areas and meeting rooms.
