Li­brary gains a makeover

Isis Town and Country - - NEWS -

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.
