Lennox Head Library opened in 1995 in a building on the edge of the school grounds that was jointly funded by the Ballina Shire Council and Department of Education. It housed both the public library and the Lennox Head Public School library. It didn't take long for the library to outgrow its space and in June 2011 the library moved into the new modern looking Cultural and Community Centre on the corner of Park and Mackney Lanes in Lennox Head and now houses over 23,000 items.
The new library has a great atmosphere and is light and spacious with a colourful decor. There is plenty of free parking close by. With plenty of study carols and comfy lounges, you can while away your time reading or browsing through books or catching up on the news in the local or metropolitan newspapers.
The library has 3 PC's available for use or you can log onto our WiFi, free of charge for Richmond Tweed Library members . There is a small charge for printing and for non-members. Sessions are run regularly for those wanting to get started on the internet or to learn about emailing.
Storytime at 10.30 on Thursdays with Katie is very popular with the youngsters and Babybounce is held every Wednesday at 10:30am. Baby Bounce promotes early literacy in babies under 2 years and fosters parent child participation and interaction. It’s a fun way for a parent and child to get rockin' with the rhyme and rhythm of songs, poems, finger plays and nursery rhymes. A variety of school holiday activities are run during each school holiday break.
Internet training sessions are held on Tuesdays and Fridays @ 10am. From basic computing, library catalogue tours, Internet searching and setting up an email account - we can help you become a confident computer user. All sessions are free and bookings are essential.
A Housebound delivery and pickup service is available to those who are frail or physically unable to make it into the library themselves.
