Geraldton Regional Library gets a Revamp!

The Geraldton Regional Library will soon receive an exciting revamp, with new shelving to be installed to meet the growing needs of the collection.

In 1968 the Town of Geraldton opened the Geraldton Public Library at the Civic Centre, and since that time hundreds of thousands of local people have used this free service.  Since relocating to Marine Terrace in 2010, the Library has remained a popular community space, with a wide selection of books, audiobooks, magazines, DVD’s, plus children’s activities, study spaces, meeting rooms, local history, free public computers and WIFI. 

As a part of the revamp, old, well-worn shelving at the Library will be replaced, meaning that the collection can be better arranged to meet the needs of the community.  Fiction lovers will be able to find their favourite authors more easily with a return to alphabetical order (but still keeping genre stickers on all titles).  Other updates will include changes to the location of study areas, a new look children’s area and more local history items out from storage.

The revamp will take place during May, involving a short period of one week’s Library closure, Monday 13th – Sunday 19th May.  Borrowers will be able to borrow additional items and have extended loan periods over this time.   Normal Library opening hours will resume Monday 20th May.

This project will mean a wide range of old shelving will become available for recycling.  Community groups interested in repurposing the old shelving are invited to drop by for a look, or express an interest by contacting either Jenni Hargrave or Trudi Cornish on 9956 6659 or library@cgg.wa.gov.au
