WELCOME TO OUR NEW LOOK LIBRARY! 

 

 

New Library Entrance

 

The library is looking fantastic with a fresh lick of paint and beautiful new carpet. People are loving the new entrance from the carpark and easy access to the reception counter.

 

Nonetheless, work is still progressing with new furniture and shelving still arriving and needing to be set up and positioned. There’s still work to be done in the computer room and Local History Centre (but computers are available for use).

 

There’s a bit of mess and noise going on, but the library refurbishment is certainly coming together nicely.

 

All of our normal library services such as Children’s Story Time, Baby Giggle Time, Toy Library, Craft Groups, Book Clubs, Family Holiday Program and events are all back up and running again so come in and check us out!
