Funding secured for new Springwood Library entrance

Blue Mountains City Council has received more than $40,000 for Springwood Library in the second and final round of the Western Parkland City Liveability program.

The funding will be used to design and construct a new entry from the existing car park into Springwood Library. This will be delivered as part of a $2.5 million library upgrade.

"We welcome the announcement of the Liveability Program funding for an extra component to the upgrade of Springwood Library," said Blue Mountains mayor, Mark Greenhill. "This means we can greatly improve access to the complex, for all our users, and particularly for those with mobility issues.

"Springwood Library is an important community facility and it's important to provide a second modern library for the growing Blue Mountains community."
