Barooga Library 10th birthday celebrations


Today Wednesday 11th March 2015, Barooga Library celebrated 10 years with a special birthday cake. 

Approximately 40 participants were treated to morning tea and scrumptious chocolate cake to mark the occasion. Mayor Bernard Curtin expressed his pride in Council’s achievements and disappointment regarding the funding of libraries from State Government. The Legislation states there must be an equal responsibility from State and Local Government when it comes to funding libraries but the cost has shifted enormously over the years with Local Government now paying 97% of library funding.

Cr. John Bruce shared his delight in having opened Barooga Library ten years ago, as well as, Berrigan and Tocumwal when he was Mayor. He expressed how well the Barooga Library blended into it’s environment, looks as good as the day it was built, and noted that the strong design withstood the tornado force of 2012.

Displays of the old and new library were pinned around the room, sparking chats of reminiscence, but pride in progress.

Mayor, Bernard praised library staff for their dedication and quality customer service.
