Sited at the former library's home in Windsor Reserve, the 950sqm building was designed by, Athfield Architects, and features art installations by North Shore Artist Judy Millar.
It boasts a dramatic floor-to-ceiling glass wall with louvered windows on the north and a curved prow towards the sea, all clad externally in cedar and internally in pine plywood.
As well as books, the library includes community meeting space and study rooms.
Special architectural features include a porthole window, a nod to the Devonport's Naval base, a security curtain designed by Millar, Barry Brickell tiles from previous library and facilities for the resident pet cat.
The $7.8 million.eco-friendly build was the result of two years of public consultation involving seven public workshops.
