FUNDING BOOST FOR KYNETON LIBRARY

The Andrews Labor Government is making record investments in Victoria’s libraries to support our learning centres under the Living Libraries Infrastructure Program.

The Member for Macedon, Mary-Anne Thomas, today announced that Kyneton Library will receive $150,000 for upgrades on the facility.

The project will include remodelling the entrance, including doors, windows and verandah to face the playground, suitable shade provision for the glass wall and upgrades to heating and cooling.

The Living Libraries Infrastructure Program helps Victorian councils and regional library corporations upgrade and adapt to meet the needs of expanding and growing communities.

The Labor Government has invested more than $18 million in 59 projects as part of the program, worth a collective $154 million.

Victoria is home to 275 permanent library branches and 30 mobile library services, with more than 2.1 million library members registered in the state.
