Community groups can put case for library space
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.
