Allora's library gets a revamp

ALLORA’S library will be closed on Monday as painters put the final touches on a new paint job.

Principal librarian Samantha Shelbourn said the work formed part of a refurbishment program under way in the library.

“Along with a fresher and brighter environment, library users will encounter a makeover in the children’s library section,” Ms Shelbourn said.

“We have totally revamped this section with bright new children’s furniture.”

As a result of some rearranging, the Allora library will be able to offer more stock in large print and audio visual, with a view to increasing the size of the total Allora collection.

Ms Shelbourn said staff members were looking forward to celebrating completion of the refurbishment with a special Storytime session scheduled for Monday, May 24.

“This is the first ever Storytime for Allora and we’d love children and adults alike to come and see our new space, join in with our stories, song and craft, and stay for light refreshments afterwards,” she said.

Depending on how the Storytime session is received, Ms Shelbourn hopes to continue the program on a more regular basis.

The 2pm Storytime session will be followed by afternoon tea, which is open to anybody who would care to join in, not just Storytime participants.
