About the Avondale integrated library and community centre

​A new multipurpose community facility is coming to the heart of Avondale Town Centre.

The facility will be one of the first integrated library and community centres in Auckland.

It will be located at the row of shops at 1971-1987 Great North Road and over part of Avondale Central Reserve.

$21 million has been approved for the space - making it the biggest council investment in Avondale in years.


What we want your feedback on

We've heard a lot from the community already which we'd like to build on, including the importance of opportunities for:

  • community connection
  • to be creative
  • to learn and grow.

Now we want to hear about the services and activities that we can offer at the new facility from people who will get the most use out of it.

We're holding a series of drop-in sessions with our staff at a variety of venues around Avondale from 9-14 April.

Come along, ask questions and tell us what you need most from the new community facility.


When you can have your say

You can have your say from 25 March to 26 April 2019.

​Thank you for your interest, this consultation closed on 26 April 2019.

We are currently reviewing your feedback and deciding on the community, leisure and art activities we will be offering at the new facility.


What happens next

The next phase of the project will begin in mid 2019.

This is when we will begin working with the architect on the design brief and seeking input on the look and feel of the facility, town square and spatial requirements.
