A generous grant from the State Library of NSW, enabled the Leeton Shire Library to invest in a range of furniture from Raeco, including study hubs, tables with curved booth seating, new seating and tables in the children’s area, a movable table with ottomans, seating and coffee tables for patrons, a magazine display unit, book stands, and disc displays for books on the walls.
These additions enhance the aesthetic appeal of the library and create functional spaces for learning, collaboration, and relaxation.
Library Supervisor Rachel Cody expressed her gratitude, stating, “We are immensely thankful to the State Library for their generous grant, which has allowed us to create a cutting-edge space for our community. The new technology and furniture have transformed our library into a hub of innovation and creativity.”
To ensure the changes met the needs of the community, the library conducted a survey, inviting patrons to share their feedback on the enhancements. The response was overwhelmingly positive, with patrons praising the new furniture in the children’s area for its kid-friendly design and comfort. Many patrons also commended the library for creating a welcoming and beautiful space, highlighting the positive impact of the improvements.
