Library gains a makeover
RENOVATIONS at the Childers Library have received positive reactions from workers and visitors.
Changes have included the removal of interior walls to make a more flexible space and filling in the reading pit which created the space for a young adult section.
This new section is furnished with a Nintendo Wii, reading couch and a study area.
“Well worth the money that was spent,” said Childers branch librarian Denise Rapkins.
Mrs Rapkins said most people were pleased with the “lighter and brighter” library and she really liked the new shelving.
“I’m very pleased with it,” she said.
The larger space was well worth the two weeks of closure and led to new opportunities for the library.
For the first time, Childers Library will be able to hold an author evening.
Phillip Hobbs, author of The Woodgate Files, will be the guest for the first author evening held on July 10.
Mrs Rapkins hopes this will be a popular event and plenty of new faces will attend.
