Newcastle City Library is located in the Charles Avison Building named after the 18th century Newcastle composer.

Newcastle City Library is a six-storey building which is home to a 185 seat performance space, a viewing platform, public art, cafe, exhibition area and the Newcastle Collection which showcases the city’s unique heritage. A modern building with a staggering book collection, the library is also the home of Newcastle’s local studies and family history section.

The modern City Library is preceded by the original Victorian Central Library and its replacement in the 1960s. It has over 1,000 chairs, some of which are original Fritz Hansen designer chairs from the 1960’s.
