FRANKSTON Library will be shut until late next month.
The library closed on 3 June to allow for a refurbishment to take place. It is not expected to reopen until late July, with an exact date not set.
While the doors to the library are closed, the floor will be re-carpeted and new shelving will be added.
A pop-up library with a collection of children’s books will open at Clyde Street Mall in the meantime.
Frankston Libraries manager Laura Antoniak said the changes were made after visitor feedback. “In the last library survey, we heard from the community how much they love their library and value their visits. We also heard that the community felt the library carpet and shelving was looking dated and I’m pleased we are refreshing the Frankston Library,” she said.
While closed, Frankston Library’s community room will be converted into a library lounge with free Wi-Fi. Items can still be returned to the library by using the after-hours return chute. The Writer’s Bloc cafe will continue to operate from the Frankston Arts Centre foyer.
Other Frankston Libraries locations can be found in Carrum Downs and Seaford. To access library books and other content online visit library.frankston.vic.gov.au
