Celtic Club, Melbourne

Celtic Club, former home, 316-320 Queen St, Melb. Vic, 3000. It will be their future home in about 3 years as the base of a new 48 storey building

A Library for Eureka’s Children

The Celtic Club has welcomed Eureka’s Children and has not only provided a venue for us to hold our monthly meetings and other activities and enjoy the hospitality of the Club but has also incorporated in the library a special section for Eureka publications.

The Club library has over 3,000 books including periodicals and magazines. The club sold its premises in Queen Street for $25 million with a permit for a 48 storey building, and has an option to go back into the bottom 4 levels of the proposed building which will take 3 years to build, so the club library is in storage and is therefore non-functional at the moment. However, we encourage Eureka members to consider donating books (they don't have to be new) to expand and enhance our special collection on Eureka and Democracy. The Eureka section also includes a complete collection and index of our 'Liberty' newsletter.


For further information and donations, contact the Cultural Heritage office of the Celtic Club phone 8535 4506 which is located at Club administrative centre 420-424 William Street West Melbourne 3003 or call in with your book donations. If you wish to donate books on the weekend please call at the Celtic @ Metropolitan (the new licensed venue for the Celtic Club) on the corner of Blackwood and Courtney streets North Melbourne.
