The Ground Floor is receiving an upgrade. From 5 to 21 June, areas will be closed off for events and carpet replacement. 

Both entrances will remain open and you can still access the Welcome Desk, cafe, toilets and baby room. 

Computers will be available on Levels 1, 2 and 3. The newspaper, magazines and the Read WA collection will temporarily move to Level 1. Extra tables and chairs will be available on the upper floors.
