Our beloved local library, the Arana Hills Library, has written a new page in its history having reopened its doors on the 23rd May after undergoing major renovations.
This community institution has been missed immensely by locals since its closure in early March for refurbishments. However, a new chapter now lies ahead for the library, after receiving a much-needed face lift. The renovations included a new roof, customer service area, outdoor patio, and a fresh lick of paint. The library is now truly revitalised and locals will be amazed by the engaging and contemporary space that has been created, inspired by the Hills District itself.
Much to the delight of the younger generation, the new renovations include a children’s space called ‘Curlew Corner’. This nook includes several Hills-inspired features for children to explore and an imaginative space for families to enjoy together. Other interactive elements that will keep little brains engaged include a Lego wall and a tree-inspired interactive feature wall promoting language and literacy.
The Library is now the perfect place to study and read, with quieter zones and booths to cacoon in. These clever zones are complete with power to connect and recharge your devices along with free Wi-Fi throughout.
Other highlights of the refurbishments include new feature picture windows, which allow readers to take in the expansive parkland views whilst relaxing in comfortable reading nooks.
The Arana Hills Library has reopened with a Library Express service, in line with current Covid-19 restrictions. At the time of going to press, only 10 customers are allowed into the library at a time and are able to spend up to 15 minutes browsing for books or 30 minutes using the public computers.
Restrictions maybe eased going forward. For more information, please contact the Library on 3351 3401.
