A new front desk and brighter entrance will soon greet patrons of the Burdekin Library Ayr.
Library Services Manager John Scott said Council had received a $22,500 infrastructure subsidy from the Local Government Grants and Subsidies program for the work.
“We are very excited to be able to replace the front desk and create a brighter entrance area as people enter the library,” he said.
“We are replacing the circulation desk with a modern counter to create a more welcoming space for patrons entering the library.
“Our library team will have a more efficient space in which to better serve the Burdekin community.”
Mr Scott said the work was part of a major refurbishment program which had been undertaken by Council over the past three years.
“Our library needed updating and we have been fortunate that we have been able to use funds from both Council and the State Library of Queensland’s annual resource grant allocation to achieve that,” he said.
“Later in the year we will have a reset day where the community will be invited to come along and see what we have done, learn about our services and help us relaunch the library.”
