The installation of the new front desk at the Burdekin Library Ayr next week will bring three years of refurbishment to a close.
Council’s Library Services Manager John Scott said the new desk and entrance area would cap off a successful upgrade in services and facilities.
“We have been upgrading the library in stages over the past three years and apart from some minor signage and furniture tweaking we’ll be done,” he said.
“We now have a more modern and vibrant library for our community.
“The library will remain open during the works, but there will be some disruptions to borrowing services while contractors are carrying the work.
“We anticipate the work will be completed by the end of October and we believe the community will embrace the new front desk and entrance area at the Burdekin Library Ayr.”
Mr Scott said he had received great feedback on what already had been done to the library.
“We believe the community will be delighted with the finished result and the effect it will have on the library,” he said.
“I would ask residents for their understanding, as we are attempting to minimise the disruption to our services.”
The work, which starts on Monday, October 20, is being funded by Council and the State Government’s Local Government Grants and Subsidies Program – Infrastructure.
