          Branch Details

          The first Ringwood Branch Library was built in Warrandyte Road, Ringwood and opened in May 1970. Ringwood and Knox Libraries were the foundation members of the Eastern Metropolitan Library Service. The Library moved to the Eastland Shopping Centre in March 1995 and in October 2013 returned to the original Warrandyte Road building while Realm – Library, Learning and Cultural Centre and a new Town Square was constructed in Eastland.

          Realm opened on October 29 2015. The new, state-of-the-art Centre integrates a library, a knowledge and innovation centre, an art gallery, a café and Council service centre.

          Special Collections
          The Realm Library ArtBoxes are a series of display spaces set into the 'wall of wonder', a constantly refreshed display of new books. The ArtBoxes feature works from emerging and established artists.
