AH Bracks Library, Melville

AH Bracks Library  has brought together art, technology, local history, science and literature to create a space that is more than just a library, but a true creative space.

With the reopening there was a new dedicated children’s room created. We recently visited to check it out and found the room such a fun space.

As expected there are heaps of children’s books but there are also big comfy pillows, reading nooks, puzzles, toys and games. This was such a relaxed, inviting space that we spent a fair amount of time in there reading and doing puzzles together.

The rest of the library is really open with plenty of seating options, including booths and lounge seating.

A great feature that I haven’t seen anywhere else before are ride and read exercise bikes. These allow people to exercise while they read. This is such a great initiative! As a student myself, I will definitely love to use this when studying for my next exam.

The library also houses some local history in the “Curiosity Cabinet”. I was really surprised how interested Miss 4 was in the items, with her asking plenty of questions and wanting to try and get a better look. Because there’s only a small selection, it’s not too overwhelming for the little kids and a great introduction to history
