Deputy Premier and Minister for the Arts Troy Grant today announced $4 million in funding for 30 councils across the state to improve public library buildings, spaces and information technology for communities.

Mr Grant said the NSW Liberals & Nationals Government understands the importance of public libraries in communities to life-long learning.

“The NSW Government recognises libraries need to adapt and designed this program to assist local government to develop and improve facilities and resources,” Mr Grant said.

“The NSW Government has a strong track record of delivering for public libraries and has invested more than $27.5 million in 2015/16 to meet the growing and varied needs of our communities.

“This new funding program has improved library services across the state. Communities from Bermagui to Bathurst, Coffs Harbour to Cooma and Wollongong to Warren are just some of the winners in the scheme this year,” Mr Grant said.

The Public Library Infrastructure Grant program will allocate $15 million over four years to enhance library services and facilities and is administered by the State Library on behalf of the NSW Government.
