Newcastle Library is located in the iconic War Memorial Cultural Centre in Laman Street in the heart of Newcastle. In 1957 the building was dedicated as the centre of culture for the City housing the Library, the Art Gallery and the Conservatorium. The library now extends over all levels of the building and includes an extensive lending library, a study area and computer lab as well as one of the country's most comprehensive local history collections. The second floor also houses the exhibition spaces: the Lovett Gallery and the Local History Lounge.
