Months in the renovating, the Moruya Library welcomes one and all to celebrate its official reopening with a free family fun day.
Eurobodalla Council’s manager of community development Kim Bush said staff were excited to show the shire all the facilities the library has to offer on the Saturday 14 December.
“Between 10am and 2pm we’ll have a plenty of activities for young and old,” Ms Bush said.
“Aside from the official opening ceremony – with ribbon cutting, welcome to country, smoking ceremony and dance at 10.30am – there’ll be face painting, story time, Lego play, scavenger hunt and sausage sizzle.
“We also have Noisy Nonna, Georgina Adamson, performing a couple of her interactive musical shows, and she’ll be bringing her Kamishibai, a special storytelling box. The shows are suitable for preschool and early school-aged children but, actually, everyone loves them!”
Ms Bush said current library members and those joining on the day would go into the running for some great prizes, “but really, the shire is the winner with this great new community space”.
“This library offers the full range of services you expect; free Wi-Fi, computer access, reading and study spaces, kids and youth zones, books, magazines and audio visual. We’ve added a meeting room and break-out spaces,” she said.
“There’s also two connected workshop spaces ready for hire. That’s something that’s been in short supply in the area – now we’ve got all these new spaces, let’s get using them.”
Ms Bush said the family fun day also presented art lovers with an opportunity to join an interactive tour of the Basil Sellers Exhibition Centre.
“It’s a chance to actively explore the Bas, all the sounds, sights and the balance of the place.”
