Library’s of the Coast – Kenilworth

Kenilworth Library worth the drive.

Sunshine Coast Council’s Kenilworth Library has joined the vibrant town mornings, opening between 9am and noon each week on Wednesday and Thursday, in addition to the regular hours.

For those who haven’t visited Kenilworth for a while, why not make a day of it by taking the beautiful Mary Valley scenic drive, past the quaint town of Imbil. Alternatively, take a drive along the Blackall Range through Maleny, Montville and Mapleton and down the Obi Obi Road.

Kenilworth Library in the centre of town – close to one very famous donut shop, the Kenilworth Bakery.

Kenilworth Library opened in the old Westpac Bank building in the main street on 7 June, 1986 with a collection of 3000 books donated by Nambour Library.

Within a month, library membership had grown to include half of the town’s population of approximately 400 people. A few years later a small council-owned cottage was moved from the Coast to Kenilworth and refurbished as a new home for the little library.

Fast track to today and Kenilworth Library operates as a jewel in the Sunshine Coast Libraries network offering computers, Wi-Fi, and a team of welcoming staff.

From books and magazines, to online resources such as ebooks, and movies or music to download, Kenilworth Library has something for everyone. Why not support this lovely little town and make sure you visit the Kenilworth Library.
