Belmont Hub is a modern multi-purpose, cross-generational building intended for all the community to access. It includes a state-of-the-art library over two levels with digital hub and recording studio, enhanced Belmont Museum, Senior Citizens Centre, office space for community service organisation providers with crèche, and a café. The Civic Centre will continue to house City of Belmont administration offices and staff.
We are still here to help!

Library membership is invaluable. It provides you with access to tens of thousands of resources (both physical and digital), use of technology in the Library and an array of programs for all ages. Memberships are available both online and in the Library. You can access your membership information, change your address, make suggestions, request items and more by logging into your library account below. Best of all, Library membership is free!
The Belmont Museum is currently closed to prepare for the move to the City’s amazing new community facility. During the closure period Library and Heritage, staff are hard at work researching and creating content as well as preparing previously unseen artifacts for the new exhibition spaces.
As always, Library and Heritage staff will still be available to answer questions and assist with your local history research.
