Moruya Library to open Wednesday 2 January

The official opening of Moruya Library has again been delayed. The revamped library’s reopening is now scheduled for Wednesday 2 January.

Eurobodalla Council’s manager community development and participation Kim Bush said there had been a delay in the delivery of materials for the library’s renovation.

“We really appreciate the community’s patience while these works are underway, it’s unfortunate that we need to extend the closure by another week,” she said.

“We will continue to have our pop-up library outside on the Moruya Library concourse, and we’re upping the borrowing limit from four to 10 items.”

When the library does reopen on Wednesday 2 January patrons can enjoy an all-day morning tea.

“We will have tea, coffee, biscuits and fruit on offer to celebrate our new-look library and to say thank you to everyone for being so patient,” Ms Bush said.

“Come along and have a look at the beautiful refurbishment.”

The library has been closed since Thursday 1 November to allow for the work, which includes a new children’s area, reception, meeting room and creative space, improved staff areas and new furniture, shelving, signage, paint and carpet. The project also includes connectivity to the new Basil Sellers Exhibition Centre, which is due to open on Friday 22 February.

It is likely an official opening of the library will be held later in the year.

The pop-up Moruya Library is open 10am-5pm Monday to Friday and 9.30am to noon on Saturdays.
