Caloundra Library refresh to benefit the community
  • Tuesday 16 May 2017
ImageContemporary and vibrant spaces for people to enjoy while reading newspapers or a favourite book are just some of the benefits of the upcoming refurbishment of council’s Caloundra Library.

Some of the improvements will include new laptop and tablet spaces, casual and comfy seating to use the free Wi-Fi and the youngest library members won’t miss out with the beach hut-themed reading nooks and their own outdoor courtyard.

Division 2 Councillor Tim Dwyer said the library refurbishment program ensured the new-look libraries provided individual, unique and flexible environments designed to complement the distinct locality and communities they represent.

“The Caloundra Library refurbishment is a step in the right direction. The design will enable it to better respond to growing population for this locality,” Cr Dwyer said.

“The refurbishment will complement the recently updated foyer at the front entrance to the library.”

Caloundra Library will be closed from Friday, June 2 and will reopen on Monday, June 26.

A pop-up library which will be open from 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday during this period, however, services will be limited.

Customers will be able to pick up reservations and return items during this time while storytime and baby rhymetime will be held at the Caloundra Regional Gallery on week days only.

Justice of the Peace, Genealogy or Literacy services will not be available during this time.

Customers can continue to access all library services at nearby branches or the eLibrary 24/7 via council’s library website.

“I would like to thank the community for their understanding during the Caloundra Library refurbishment program,’ Cr Dwyer said.

“Stay tuned for the announcement of the opening in July 2017 when we will be inviting the community to join in the celebrations.”
