Mill Park is a relatively new outer Northern suburb in Melbourne, situated 23 km from the CBD, in a "population growth corridor". Its Local Government Area is the City of Whittlesea. At the 2006 Census, Mill Park had a population of 31,642. The Mill Park Library opened in 2002 at a cost of $8 million, and was the first library in Victoria to be designed on the concept of a hybrid digital/print library. It serves the northern outer suburbs. This iconic library building on Plenty Road has a spacious children’s library, a fully equipped training room with 12 PCs, an extensive Local History collection and a quiet reading area. As well as material in English, the library offers community language material in Italian, Greek, Maltese and Chinese.
