New library a first for Braybrook26 Jul 2012
Braybrook will soon have its own library for the first time, as part of the new $11 million Braybrook Community Hub.
Braybrook residents are about to get their own library, thanks in part, to $750,000 from the Living Library Infrastructure Program.
Minister for Local Government Jeanette Powell said the new Braybrook Library would be a key feature of the new $11 million Braybrook Community Hub and a wonderful resource for the local community.
The funding to Maribyrnong City Council means that residents of Braybrook can, for the first time, access a library in their neighbourhood.
Mrs Powell said as part of the transformation of the old Braybrook Community Centre site, the library will include a great book collection; technologies to connect local people with the rest of the world; spaces for private study, learning and reading; and other flexible spaces for meetings.
"All of this will be available in a building with environmentally sustainable design features and within walking or cycling distance for many of the local community.
"With this new library, Braybrook residents will experience first-hand the key role libraries play in promoting life-long learning opportunities and bringing people together," Mrs Powell said.
The Braybrook Library funding is one project from the Living Libraries Infrastructure Program which has $17.2 million over four years to upgrade Victoria's public library network.
