Com­mu­nity groups can put case for li­brary space

Wangaratta Chronicle - - News -

THE Ru­ral City of Wan­garatta coun­cil is now ac­cept­ing ex­pres­sions of in­ter­est from com­mu­nity fo­cused groups to use a va­cant space at the Wan­garatta Li­brary.

Man­ager of arts, cul­ture and events, Penny Har­grave, said coun­cil wanted to see the space come to life with “ac­tiv­i­ties com­ple­men­tary to the ser­vices de­liv­ered” by the li­brary.

“The li­brary places the com­mu­nity at the heart of ev­ery­thing they do and this is an ex­cit­ing op­por­tu­nity to share part of the build­ing,” she said.

The Vic­to­rian Govern­ment’s Liv­ing Li­braries In­fra­struc­ture Pro­gram pro­vided coun­cil with $47,000 to con­trib­ute to a $70,510 project to ren­o­vate the li­brary.

Other work as part of the project in­cludes ex­pan­sion to the chil­dren’s area and the cre­ation of a small meet­ing room in an area pre­vi­ously re­served for GOTAFE stu­dents.

Ex­pres­sions of in­ter­est in the com­mu­nity space are open un­til Thurs­day, Oc­to­ber 26.
