About the upgrade
Construction of the new Knox Library is part of a major redevelopment of Westfield Knox.

Key design features include:
- Garden room
- Computer area
- Meeting rooms
- Study booths
- Designated areas for youth and children
- The Youth Hive managed by Council’s Youth Services
A temporary library, “Knox Express” has been set up in Knox Ozone until construction is finalised. The Youth Information Centre is currently located near Headspace in Knox Ozone.
The library will house a painting by Kamara Morgan, a proud Yorta-Yorta, Gunai-Kurnai, Dja Dja Wurrung, Boonwurrung, Taungurung, and Baraparapa Aboriginal artist. The artwork, Connection to Country, will be on display in the library and incorporated into the architectural design including a ceiling feature and window treatments.
The Victorian Government are contributing $450,000 through the Living Libraries Infrastructure Program. Council is contributing $4.9 million.
The new library will be located at Westfield Knox, 425 Burwood Hwy, Wantirna South.
