Weddin Shire mayor Mark Liebich was on hand to officially reveal the new-look library which has just received a major upgrade thanks to a successful grant funding application submitted by librarian Erica Kearnes under the NSW Governments’ Public Library Infrastructure Grant.

And what a wonderful transformation, the library is now well equipped with new mobile shelving, a new children’s area and much more. Erica thanked all those who assisted her with the upgrades as well as those present for the re opening. 

The new children's area is a terrific space for kids to read and play.
