The Chronicle - - Regional -

ST GE­ORGE: The Balonne Shire Coun­cil will con­sult with the com­mu­nity about the re­vi­tal­i­sa­tion of the St Ge­orge Li­brary.

Coun­cil re­ceived fund­ing through the State Gov­ern­ment’s Ma­tur­ing In­fra­struc­ture Pipe­line Pro­gram 2 for the project.

Balonne Shire Coun­cil mayor Cr Richard Marsh said mod­ern li­braries were places that of­fered more than books.

“Th­ese day li­braries are turn­ing into the hub of our com­mu­nity by of­fer­ing high-speed in­ter­net, new tech­nol­ogy such as 3D print­ing, ed­u­ca­tional pro­grams for school-aged chil­dren and more,” Cr Marsh said.

There will be two con­sul­ta­tion ses­sions which will take place on Mon­day, No­vem­ber 19 at the St Ge­orge Cul­tural Cen­tre An­nexe from 10am to 11.30am and 5.30pm to 7pm.
