It's a fantastic facility for all members of the community.

Previously located at the Old Court House, the current library was opened on 15 April 2009.

It has a combination of historic and modern influences and is a replica to the original “Banksi” which once stood at the site. Some of the material was recycled from the original building, including a front window, doors, a mantel piece and ceiling rose which is a feature in the “Banksi” room, named after the original building.

The construction of the new library also included engaging local Artist Helene Mortlock to design two glass panels to display as you walk into the library. The panels illustrate some of Jerilderie's rich history and also present day and include photographs as well as Helene’s artistic drawing. The panels can be viewed during normal library opening hours.

The library also has a separate meeting room available for hire, the Monash Media Room.  Bookings for the Monash Media Room should be made through the Council Office, by telephoning 03 5886 1200.
