Tenders have been invited for the design and construction of a Toowoomba Regional Council (TRC) library, customer service centre and community meeting facility at 32 and 38 O’Brien Road in Highfields.
TRC Environment and Community Services Committee chair Cr James O’Shea said the new facility would provide a modern, purpose-built design to meet the current and future needs of the Highfields community.
“The new facility will replace the existing library which supports around 52,600 visitors each year,” Cr O’Shea said.
“The current library doesn’t have the space or facilities required to accommodate the growing number of library users in Highfields and its surrounding communities.
“The new facility will provide a customer service centre, community meeting rooms, a dedicated junior reading area, computer facilities, including free Wi-Fi access, and photocopy services.”
