The grant will be used to purchase new, portable shelves to provide more opportunity for a variety of events, programs and activities held in the space. These shelves will also better display the library collection making items easier to discover and access. This will enhance the usability of Castlemaine Library for patrons, encouraging independence and confidence when visiting. To support these improvements and the many more resources and services offered at the library, repairs to the flooring are needed to help maintain and look after the well-used, historical building.
The Castlemaine Library receives over 12,000 visits a month and is valued highly by the community. Along with repairing the library floor to ensure the safe delivery of services, obtaining moveable library shelving will provide a flexible and functional solution for current and future needs, and allow the library to be responsive to all the ways our space gets used – from children’s sessions to author talks, school holiday programs and creative workshops.
