The Kerang Branch of the library service had previously been located at 48 Wellington Street in Kerang for 26 years in what was originally a ES&A bank building. Since becoming automated, and providing a public internet service, the library building became increasingly inadequate with limited space and inappropriate access.
After shire amalgamation in 1996, the Kerang Library was joined by Cohuna and Leitchville to become the Gannawarra Library Service.
The new headquarters in Kerang was commenced in May 2002, with a projected finish date of June 2003. The new location is adjacent to the Murray Valley Highway and has proven to be of added interest to tourists and passersby in general. The new Sir John Gorton Library in Kerang was finished in July 2003 and a 'Community Open Day' was held in August 2003. The official opening took place on September 11 2003.
