Event description

Description

Please join us on this special tour to celebrate the opening of the new Marrickville Library & Pavilion. Discover the social history that has shaped the architecture of the new library.

The site was once part of Marrickville’s largest land grant which was subdivided over the years to Marrickville’s legendary landowners. The site has a rich history, from a market garden to a cottage hospital which expanded into the district hospital, later becoming the home to creatives, squatters and social advocates.

The tour will also touch-on the unique construction and sustainability features of the new Marrickville Library.


Meet in the foyer of the new library.
