New contemporary and vibrant spaces for people to enjoy while reading newspapers or a favourite book are just some of the benefits of council’s upcoming Beerwah Library refurbishment.
The library will be closed from Saturday, March 3 and will reopen on Monday, March 19 to unveil the revitalised space which better meets changing community needs and library trends.
Division 1 Councillor Rick Baberowski said the library service would continue operating during the refurbishment program.
“The upgrade will ensure that the new-look library keeps pace with how libraries need to provide more specialised and flexible environments, while still complementing the distinct locality and communities they serve,” Cr Baberowski said.
“It will better celebrate and capture Beerwah’s local landscape by integrating local environmental themes and colour palettes.
“The re-design will also better respond to the local community’s needs when it comes to the range of service spaces required.”
To ensure access to Beerwah library services during the refurbishment, a pop-up library will be open from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday, at the Beerwah Community Hall.
While the services will be limited, customers will still be able to pick up reservations, return items and borrow from a reduced collection.
Access to daily newspapers and Wi-Fi will also be available.
However, please bear in mind there will be no Justice of the Peace services, Literacy services, Tech Help, Story time or Rhyme time during the refurbishment.
Customers can continue to access all library services at nearby branches or via the eLibrary 24/7 via council’s library website.
“I would like to thank the community in advance for their understanding during the Beerwah Library refurbishment program,’ Cr Baberowski said.
“Stay tuned for the announcement of the re-opening when we will be inviting the community to join in the celebrations.”
