Wangi Library Creative Hub relaunches as Hunter’s first self-access library

A $350,000 overhaul to Wangi Library Creative Hub has seen it reopen as a cutting-edge venue. More than just a library the Wangi Library Creative Hub is the first creative venue in the Hunter Region to operate under a ‘community self-access’ model and is the first co-located library and art studio.


Lake Macquarie City Council Manager Arts, Culture and Tourism Jacqui Hemsley said the community self-access model was similar to gyms, where members could access the Creative Hub via their library membership card at a time convenient to them.
