When friends invite you over to their place, it’s usually because they’re proud of the spaces they inhabit and the warmth and hospitality they offer. We feel the same about our space, where everyone is welcome to come and relax, learn and feel at home.

The Mount Gambier Library exists to promote knowledge, inquiry and innovation. It’s a space for all ages, providing free and easy access to quality information in all its forms, helped by friendly and knowledgeable staff.


The Mount Gambier Library is part of the SA public library ‘one card’ network Connecting more than 130 public libraries across South Australia to let you borrow and return items wherever you go, using your current library card.


Drawing inspiration from Ewens and Piccaninnie Ponds, the cave-themed children’s area is a wondrous theatrical experience. On crawling through the entry a magical underwater world – a dazzling kaleidoscope of aquamarine – is revealed, creating one of the most unique children’s libraries in the world. The space is literally alive with aquatic flora and fauna of the region, including fish, bats and dragonflies. An  outsize rubber latex Southern Bell frog clings to the wall, a diver hangs suspended from the ceiling and a giant frog chair sits ready for storytelling. Specially designed book shelves, a craft and activity and activity area and an iPad zone add universal appeal. A fully equipped parenting room is conveniently adjacent.
