Another big night of wins for Marrickville Library at the 2020 National Trust Heritage Awards
Marrickville Library took out the major Judges Choice award at the National Trust Heritage Awards 2020, as well as winning for both Adaptive Re-use and Education & Interpretation.
Filmed at heritage-listed Lindesay in Darling Point, the National Trust held its first ever virtual National Trust Heritage Awards ceremony.
In its 26th year, the National Trust Heritage awards is a greatly anticipated annual event that awards excellence in the field of conservation, education, interpretation, advocacy and events that protect and promote greater appreciation and understanding of heritage.
On being informed of winning the Judge’s Choice Award for this year’s National Trust Heritage Awards, Inner West Mayor Darcy Byrne, said, “This beautiful public facility is more than a library, it’s a new town square for Marrickville which is helping to bring the whole community together.”
The new Marrickville Library was built into a heritage restoration of the former Marrickville Hospital.
The wins add to a growing list of awards for the library. Last week Marrickville library won two major awards at the prestigious Australian Institute of Architects Awards 2020.
Leichhardt Town Hall also had a win for Conservation Built Heritage.
