Library users at Wollondilly will soon get the space for quiet study or reading that they’ve been asking for.

Member for Wollondilly, Nathaniel Smith, today announced a total of $403,092 in funding for the Wollondilly Library.

This is part of $6 million worth of funding for 26 public library projects across NSW under the 2021/22 Public Library Infrastructure Grant Program.

“These funds will help us to upgrade the library, incorporating a great new community lounge space, providing places to read quietly or meet with others,” Wollondilly’s Mayor Matt Gould said.

“The new facilities will allow for room to grow for our future Cultural Precinct library, and will become a permanent community space when the Precinct is complete.”

Thanking Mr Smith for supporting Council to receive this funding, Cr Gould said that libraries provide a space where people of all ages can come together for all sorts of activities, so it is fantastic to see them prioritised by the State Government.
