Polished and loaded with brand-new books, the Richmond Tweed Regional Mobile Library has arrived. Photo supplied.

Following the destruction of the previous trailer in this year’s unprecedented floods, a replacement trailer for the Richmond Tweed Regional Mobile Library has arrived – it’s been polished and loaded with brand-new books and is on the road.

The new stock of book have come from donations gratefully received from local residents, and people and organisations across Australia and overseas!

The Mobile Library is back visiting our region’s towns, villages, and outlying communities.

Richmond Tweed Regional Library Mobile Library Officer, Gary Dardengo, said they’re glad to be back. ‘After a short hiatus, and after many messages of support and thanks, we’re on the road and coming to a stop near you!’

The acting Regional Library Manager, Lucy Kinsley said she wanted to thank the communities across the region for their support and their patience while they worked hard to return to service. ‘We know how popular and how well-loved the Mobile Library and its staff are, and we sincerely thank you. We’re looking forward to seeing you all.’

Keep an eye on the library website and social media for events being held across the region to celebrate the Mobile Library’s return.

You can view the searchable Mobile Library timetable on the library website at www.rtrl.nsw.gov.au and on the library app.

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
