It's business as usual at the relocated Sunshine Library, and Sunshine Customer Service Centre

In August this year, the Sunshine Library and the Sunshine Customer Service Centre relocated temporarily away from Hampshire Road, Sunshine  to make way for construction of the $52 million Brimbank Community and Civic Centre.

It’s business as usual for these popular services in their new locations in the Sunshine Municipal office precinct.

The Sunshine Customer Service Centre is now located within the Sunshine Municipal Offices, at 6-18 Alexandra Avenue.

The Sunshine Library is now located at McCracken Street, Sunshine, near the Sunshine Municipal Offices. Library staff are in the portable nearby.
