The Southbank Library at Boyd has a reader-friendly layout, similar to a bookshop, making it much easier for borrowers to find their next great read.

Rather than being organised by Dewey, the non-fiction is arranged by a unique subject-based system with books clustered by popular topics such as Home and Lifestyle, Food and Drink, Arts and Culture, and Travel.

The library is part of the former JH Boyd Girls High School, which has been transformed into a vibrant new community hub for Southbank.

Preserving the original heritage character of the building, the design has improved its sustainability and created new spaces to accommodate a range of community services, including a library.
