Lismore mobile library refloated

Lismore’s Mobile Library is back on the road after being destroyed in the region’s flood disaster earlier this year.

The Mobile Library is a service provided by the Richmond Tweed Regional Library (RTRL) that visits communities and villages across the Local Government Areas of Lismore, Tweed, Byron and Ballina.

Lismore Mayor, Steve Krieg said it was a significant achievement by Lismore City Council staff to ensure the return of the mobile library following its destruction by flood waters.

“Several Council departments worked together to ensure the replacement Mobile Library was repaired, modified and fitted out so it can return to the streets of our region,” he said.

“It’s great news for our small communities and villages that library services are returning to their doorstep, with a range of books and PCs to use.”

RTRL Manager, Lucy Kinsley said the truck was stacked with newly donated books following an outpouring of donations after the February natural disaster.

“All the books in the Mobile Library are new thanks to donations sent to us from Australia and around the world,” she said.

“We want to thank our communities across the region for their support and patience while we worked hard to return to service.

“We know how popular and well-loved the Mobile Library is, and we look forward to seeing you all when we visit your community.”
