Merely 20 years after the settlement of Buderim was established, a library was founded in 1887 by pioneer James Lindsay. The library at this time was operating from his home called “Ryhope”.
In 1924 the Buderim Library opened in Main Street and after renovations to the Buderim Memorial Hall, it occupied the building in which it stands to present day.
The street address is:
3 Main Street, Buderim
Phone 07 5445 3779
This makes our Buderim Library one of the oldest operating libraries in the State of Queensland.

The buderim Library is operated on a volunteer basis and kept alive finacially by membership fees, grants and the Famous Easter Fair in Buderim.
