The Bexley North Library recently received a $25,000 facelift with funding from a State Library NSW Local Priority Grant and is now ready to welcome visitors again once COVID-19 restrictions are lifted.
Bexley North Library closed for one week in March to have the old service desk replaced and the walls painted.
The new wall colour is ''knowledge' which is a fitting colour for a library.
The library opened on Monday 23 March but two days later the Government lockdown required all libraries to close.
The second part of the renovation, which included the installation of new carpet tiles, took place
during the COVID-19 lockdown.
The Library staff diligently removed every book, CD, DVD and magazine from the shelves which had to be moved while the carpet was laid and restocked them all again once the shelving was back in place.
All the equipment was reconnected and finally the library was deep cleaned to get everything ready for when it will be re-opened.
