The finishing touches will be made to the Nambour and Heritage Library this month, to complete a striking refurbishment.

The library, at the corner of Currie and Bury streets, will be closed from October 18 until October 24 for eye-catching murals to be added to the inside walls.

These upgrades will tie together other improvements, such as new furniture, shelving and layout modifications, which were completed in June.

Sunshine Coast Council Division 10 and Community Portfolio Councillor David Law said the refurbishment provided modern facilities for the community.

“Sunshine Coast Libraries are one of the most visible, popular and valued services council provides to our community,” Cr Law said.

“Council is committed to investing in library operations and infrastructure to ensure they remain relevant and responsive to new and existing audiences, and continue to have a positive influence on our diverse communities.

“The revitalised libraries will better capture and celebrate Nambour’s local landscape through an updated colour palette and local imagery.

“The area’s history will also be honoured through captivating historical images from the Heritage Library’s Picture Sunshine Coast catalogue.

“During the closure, customers will be able to access newspapers or collect a pre-loved book from the red phone box in the Nambour Forecourt, outside the library entrance.

“Customers can also access library services at nearby branches or via the eLibrary 24/7 on the library website.
