Tweed Heads Library, which has undergone a major facelift and doubled in size, officially re-opens to the public this morning (Friday).

The expanded and modernised building was due to reopen its doors on Wednesday, but briefly put on hold to enable last-minute safety work.

Council’s director of community and natural resources, Tracey Stinson, thanked library users for their patience and cooperation during the upgrade project.

Ms Stinson said and these final few steps to Library users will see a much larger and more versatile building. Floorspace has been increased from 619 square metres to 1054 square metres, and the layout allows much greater flexibility in use to meet the needs of individuals and groups.’

Improvements also include enhanced accessibility, a larger computer area with more PCs, new loan stations that give users a fast and easy self-service option to borrow resources, and a more user-friendly service desk.

All library resources will be available to the public from Friday. However, there will continue to be a couple of areas of the new building that will not be accessible to the public initially, until some finishing touches are added.

An official opening celebration, including a day of community activities, is scheduled for Monday 22 January.
