Wentworth Point Community Centre and Library

Artist concept of New Wentworth Point Library

July 2019 Update

We are excited to announce that the new Wentworth Point Community Centre and Library (WPCCL) will open to the public in December 2019.

It will be a dynamic, multipurpose community hub, offering everything from a library service to a cafe, co-working spaces to an artist workshop.

The Wentworth Point and Newington communities have waited a long time for this exciting facility and we understand frustrations with the delay. City of Parramatta Council has been working closely with the developer Billbergia and our communities to bring this great development to life. Workers are currently putting the finishing touches on the WPCCL, which will open its doors before Christmas.

Facilities

Operated by City of Parramatta Council, the WPCCL will provide:

  • a contemporary library service including a learning lab/maker space and quiet study areas
  • flexible community meeting spaces
  • an artist exhibition and workshop space
  • music practice spaces
  • a microbusiness co-working space
  • a 24/7 foyer containing a library book vending machine, self-serve reservation pick-up point and return chute; and
  • a café to be operated by a social enterprise.

The WPCCL will complement the services provided by the Rhodes Connection and will have the capability to develop new program options based on its flexible layout and responsiveness to changing community needs. This accessible hub will further enhance the vibrancy, inclusiveness and wellbeing of the Wentworth Point and Newington communities. 

City of Parramatta will continue to provide updates and more information becomes available.
