Now that you have viewed the design, please share your thoughts with us.
We heard the local community say you wanted a state-of-the-art, environmentally sensitive, creative, technologically enabled, library and community space, that catered to the diverse needs of the growing local community.
The feedback we received has given us a greater understanding of the aspirations for the hub, including who will be using the space, what type of community activities and creative spaces you would like included so that we could design a space for the whole community to enjoy for generations to come.
The designers have incorporated your feedback to create an inspiring library design for the Armstrong Creek town centre.
Have a look at the design images or watch the video for more detail.
Construction is scheduled from July 2022 to February 2024.

Nestled in the heart of Armstrong Creek, the new Armstrong Creek Library and Community Hub not only provides a place for learning, but a place for locals to gather and grow together. The fluid waterways of this landscape to the Wadawurrung People are part of a much larger ecology and have been a natural meeting point and travelling route for centuries offering a place of sustenance, fluidity, fertility and spirituality, known as ‘Living Water’.
Just as Living Water gathers and nourishes us, our vision for the new library and community hub is to gather and nourish the people of Armstrong Creek at a central meeting point; a place of inspiration where the community and future generations can thrive together.
The site has views to Wurdi Youang (the You Yangs) and Mount Duneed, and near to Lake Connewarre, all of which are significant places for Wadawurrung People.
Buchan worked with the Wadawurrung Traditional Owners Aboriginal Corporation and the City in developing a ‘Living Water’ design narrative.
This next stage of feedback is a vital part to ensure we create an inviting place that meets the needs of the whole community.
We'd love you to view the concept designs and provide your feedback by either taking our online feedback form below, taking our quick poll or attending our information session at the Waurn Ponds Library to discuss the plan with our team and staff from Buchan (architects).
We are taking feedback until Friday 3 December 2021.
A summary about the feedback received will be shared back with the community in early 2022.
Now that you have viewed the design, please share your thoughts with us.
An information session was held at Waurn Ponds Library on 24 November providing the community an opportunity to discuss the concept plan with project officers and architects.
