Residents in the Cannonvale and Airlie Beach area will be pleased to see their local library re-opened on Monday 3 July after significant damage sustained by Tropical Cyclone Debbie (TC Debbie) forced its closure for a three month period.
Mayor Andrew Willcox said that Council is excited to return some basic services to library members and the general community.
“Unfortunately the library sustained significant damage to the building, equipment and the books as a result of TC Debbie however our friendly Cannonvale Library team is thrilled to be back and they look forward to welcoming their visitors once again,” Mayor Willcox said.
“Basic services available include book borrowings and returns on a limited selection of books, DVD’s and CD’s, some public computer access and the recommencement of the Tuesday Book Club,” he said.
“While there are still some services unavailable such as scanning and Wi-Fi access, our teams are working extremely hard to get them up and running in the coming weeks.“I’m very appreciative to all of our residents who have been patient while we undertake repair works; I’m aware of how much this facility has been missed.”
First 5 Forever reading programs will recommence as normal after the school holidays. Anyone with enquiries is encouraged to speak to our friendly staff at the Cannonvale Library.
