Liverpool Plains Shire Council Mayor, Councillor Andrew Hope has welcomed the announcement that Council has been successful in gaining $200,000 from the Public Library Infrastructure Grant program to expand the library in Quirindi.
“While the Quirindi Library, in its current form, has served the community well over many years, expansion of services during this time has resulted in the need to increase available floor space in order to better serve the community into the future,” Cr Hope said.
“In recent years ongoing consultation has indicated the need for expansion to be a community priority so this is a very pleasing outcome.
“The library will be extended to include the area formerly occupied by the real estate office and Council also has plans to revamp the overall precinct area.
“On behalf of the community I extend thanks to Michael Johnsen for his support in gaining this funding and the benefits that will flow from this investment,” he said.
