Library closed as asbestos removed

Discovery of asbestos in the ceiling during renovations means the Brunswick Heads Branch Library will be closed for a further four weeks until Monday, October 18.

Byron Council property manager Trish Kirkland said the asbestos clean-up was being undertaken by certified experts and with the authorisation of Workcover.

“As a result, additional time is required to remove the asbestos before the renovations can be completed,” she said.

The scheduled $37,000 renovation included the building being painted and minor repair work.

The upgrade has been funded under the Federal Government's second round Regional and Local Community Infrastructure Program.

Library books and items can be renewed online at www.rtrl.nsw.gov.au.

Items can be returned to the Mullumbimby branch in Station Street and the Byron Bay branch or any other branch of the Richmond Tweed Regional Library.
