A new community meeting room, free for non-profit organisations and community groups to hire, has been launched at the Lismore Library.

The dedicated space is to be available for meetings, workshops, presentations and other gatherings.

Lismore City Mayor Steve Krieg in announcing the room via media release has said it can seat up to 50 people and is equipped with Wi-Fi, projector, screen and whiteboard.

‘Importantly, it is accessible to people with disabilities and is centrally located with shops, cafes and covered parking, all conveniently located nearby,’ Cr Krieg says.

Member for Lismore Janelle Saffin is quoted in the same announcement thanking Lismore librarian Michael Lewis and his team ‘for always looking for ways the library can better serve the community’.

The Lismore member says a new children’s library in city centre has proved to be a winner and she’s sure the new meeting room will also be well used and much appreciated by the community.

Mr Lewis says the Lismore Toy Library will be using the space each month for its toy lending program.

The new space is the result of joint funding from the federal and NSW governments, allocated to the Lismore library via the Arts and Culture Essential Community Asset Program (ECAP) as part of a Community Local Infrastructure Recovery Package (CLIRP).

It’s housed inside the Lismore Central shopping Centre at 44 Carrington Street, Lismore.

Reservations can be made online at www.lismore.nsw.gov.au and by searching for a venue or calling the library on 02 6621 2464.
