The Albany Tourism & Information Hub has transformed the face of tourism and library information services in Albany and the Great Southern Region.
The co-location of the Library and Visitors Centre improves the standard, convenience and efficiency of service delivery for locals and visitors, and enhances the long term viability of the tourism industry with its associated benefits to the regional economy. The design of the new facility creates a new level of connectivity across public spaces and amenities at ground level, and the addition of new meeting rooms and multifunctional, flexible spaces, along with enhancements inside the library, serve to connect the community and provide ongoing social and educational benefits.
