Katoomba Library Update

Look to your right, there’s a count-down to the opening of the all-singing, all-dancing, NEW Katoomba Library! 

What does our spy report this week?

  • While the new Coles supermarket opened 2 weeks ago, the Blue Mountains Cultural Centre is still putting the finishing touches in place.
  • At the new Katoomba Library, all the carpet has been installed, the painting finished, the furniture in place and the shelving has been assembled.
  • The entire Library collection has been boxed and moved over 3 nights last week.  This is approximately 30,000 items. 
  • The Katoomba Library staff are currently unpacking the boxes and placing items on the brand new shelves.  New books will be added to this collection over the next 2 weeks.
  • There is still some joinery to be installed such as the lift cladding, display shelves, newspaper and magazine shelves.
  • The WiFi was installed last week and is being tested.

Staff are very excited by the new space and can’t wait to show it off to the Library patrons.
