Construction of the new Yankalilla Library will soon begin, adding an extension onto the building known as ‘the centre’, located at 181 Main South Road Yankalilla.

Throughout the process to develop the new Library there has been discussions about an appropriate name for the combine building and what the signage will look like.

Will it be named the ‘Youth Centre and Library’ or does it remain ‘the Centre and Library’ or is there a new name such as ‘Community Hub and Library’ or something completely different?

Feedback has indicated that the name of ‘Youth Centre’ negates the fact that although youth will be given priority, the building will be used by many community members and groups.

We have also received feedback in the past the name ‘the centre’ is confusing and not unique.

What’s not negotiable?

The name of the actual Library will remain the ‘Yankalilla Library’, we are looking for a name for the building, not to rename the Yankalilla Library.
