A spokesperson for Central Coast Council Library Service said that Kariong Library was being relocated to The Hill Youth Centre, 98 Mitchell Dve, Kariong, and would be closed from March 17 as the new location is being refurbished.
“The new location will have new carpeting, some new shelving, seating and furniture in the foyer, as well as refreshed collections and enhanced WIFI connectivity.
“The new space will also include staff offices allowing for extended mobile library and outreach services in the surrounding areas, as well as increasing security and safety for the staff,” the spokesperson said.
It is estimated that the new location will open from March 31.
During the closure, library items can still be returned to the after hours chute 24/7 at the current Curringa Rd site, with the after hours chute to also be relocated to the new site upon its opening.
