Jika Urban Village Library

Jika Jika Community Centre, 1B Plant Street, Northcote, Victoria 3070, Australia

Close to Westgarth Station and the 86 Tram, we believe reading is for everyone so you can find Adult, Young Adult and Children’s books at our library.

Jika’s vision is of an active, connected community that inspires and fosters possibility, so where better to start than sharing books that we’ve loved and would like to share with neighbours? We also have a Seed Library, Plant and Toy Exchange – something for everyone.

Maybe you read every day, maybe you haven’t picked up a book in years. No matter, our little library is here for everyone, so dive in.

We love the idea that books come to Jika then wander off on a new adventure. Maybe they come back, maybe they don’t, we just hope they’re enjoyed across our community and beyond – everyone sharing and talking about what they’ve read, everyone learning, everyone growing. If you’ve read something from our library and it’s inspired you to do something new, come and tell us!

As Oprah Winfrey says – “Books were my pass to personal freedom.”

Our active, friendly urban librarian team is always on the lookout for new things to share – and not just books. So, if you’ve got something to offer us or an idea for the library, pop in, we’d love to see you!
