Nanango’s library has been stripped down to a double row of bookshelves housed in a donga next to the South Burnett Energy Centre in Henry Street … It will stay that way for the next six months until refurbishments are complete; staff will rotate books on a monthly schedule, and other library services will operate as usual

Work on the $2 million refurbishment of the former Nanango Shire Council Chambers will begin next week.

On Tuesday, the South Burnett Regional Council said Lansky Construction – the company appointed to do the work – will be on site this week to complete initial site inspections, prepare for demolition, and make arrangements for skip bins and site offices.

The contractors will take possession of the building next Monday (May 27) and the project is expected to take six months to complete.

Council staff normally based in the building have been temporarily moved to Kingaroy and the Nanango Council Depot while the refurbishment is underway.

Both the Nanango Customer Service Centre and Library have been moved across the road to the South Burnett Energy Centre.

During the temporary relocation, the library will continue to offer most services, with some library activities hosted at Ringsfield house.

“This project will improve the functionality, accessibility and amenity of this important community facility,” Mayor Keith Campbell said.

“The Library and Administration Building is a key hub for the Nanango community and we’re excited to see the refurbishment works underway.

“We look forward to an upgraded facility that will better cater for Council and community needs.”
