Thuringowa Library continues to deliver for the community
Date published: 27 September 2017
Storytime at Thuringowa Library continues to be one of the library’s most popular drawcards with about 15 families attending each week.
The session held every week at the library is an opportunity to bring families into the library and to ignite children’s’ imaginations and accelerate their language development through great children’s stories, songs and rhymes.
Community and Cultural Development Committee chair Cr Colleen Doyle said Thuringowa Library offered an abundance of activities and facilities for all ages.
“I want to remind the community that the Thuringowa Library is still operating, despite the fact that the adjoining building itself is no longer part of council,” Cr Doyle said.
“The library and its customer service centre function are still in operation and we welcome the community in to see what we have to offer.
“There’s so much more to the library than just borrowing books – we have technology help, access to free internet, x-boxes for families to use as well as a very popular ping pong table, document scanners and lots of programs where people can learn something new.
“Residents can also pay rates, dog registrations and apply for or update their pensioner transport cards through the customer service desk* located within the branch.”
