Opened on 15 April 2009, it has a combination of historic and modern influences. The building is a replica to the original "Banksi" home, which once stood at the site. The construction of the new library also included engaging a local artist, Helene Mortlock, to design two glass panels to display at the entry to the Library. The panels illustrate some of Jerilderie's rich history and present day influences, and include photographs as well as Helene's artistic drawing.
