Woodvale Library Celebrates 30 Years
This month Woodvale Library is celebrating its 30th Anniversary.
When Woodvale Library was built in 1991 it was surrounded by bushland and stood alone on Trappers Drive. It was officially opened on 13 November 1991 by the City of Wanneroo Mayor, William (Bill) Marwick. It became the seventh library in the then City of Wanneroo, and within six months of opening became one of the busiest public libraries in the state. Woodvale Library has issued over seven million loans to date.
Over the years, Woodvale Library has been adept at developing and changing to the needs of the community by not only providing books for loan, but a wide selection of services and programs for all ages. In 2006 the children’s area was refurbished into a fantasy theme featuring the popular dragon named Dewey.
The Library has a strong digital literacy focus and played a vital role during the recent lockdowns by providing a Digital Helpline to support community members navigating new digital demands. The Helpline, Keystrokes, Libraries Online, Digital Drop-In and other community events and programs continue to be well supported making Woodvale Library a vibrant community hub.
