Born in the 60’s
Originally constructed in 1968, Maitland Library turns 50 this year.
Conceived by architects Bunning and Madden, who also designed the National Library of Australia, the library building is a rare example of post World War 2 modernism right in the centre of Maitland.
Described as one of the most outstanding buildings in country New South Wales at the time, it was more than 10 times the size of the original library.
Join in us in celebrating the iconic building that has been providing the Maitland community with library services for the last 50 years.
