Townsville City Council announced $5.5 million in the 2021/22 Budget to relocate the Thuringowa Library into the Riverway Arts Precinct.

The move encompasses an overhaul of the current Riverway Arts Centre, creating a future focused, mixed-use facility that catalyses new industries, provides safe 24 hour community facilities and a space for local businesses to operate and innovate.

The relocation will co-locate a modern and innovative library facility with outside amenities including free public swimming pools, a 'creative hub' supporting physical fabrication and digital production (audio, music and video podcasting), experimentation, collaboration and knowledge sharing, 24 hour community facilities and safe spaces for at-risk young people, parenting rooms, business lounge and 24hr meeting rooms to support the growing remote workforce.
