About Broadbeach Library

Opened on 26 August 2008, Broadbeach Library is one of the City's most environmentally-compliant buildings, incorporating ecologically sustainable design principles to reduce the consumption of water, electricity and air conditioning.

The natural hues of the building have been designed to reflect the natural environment of the Gold Coast, while the striking bright wall displays at either end of the building are reminiscent of the city's heyday past.
