Oberon locals now have a dynamic public space to enjoy literature, culture and the arts while accessing the latest technology with this week’s official opening by Bathurst MP Paul Toole of the new, digitally connected community hub.
Made possible thanks to a $3.2 million grant from the former NSW Liberal and Nationals Government’s Drought Stimulus Package, the new facility features a light and spacious library, meeting rooms, functions rooms, digital technology and exhibition spaces for the whole community to enjoy.
“Ther the new hub will be a vibrant setting in which locals can read books, write and enjoy art or use the high-speed internet to study or facilitate business meetings,” he said.
“Oberon Community Hub will also support small business operators in the region who will be able to drop in and efficiently manage orders online or pay bills. It will also mean young people won’t have to move away to get an education.
“The revamped site in Fleming Street will house the library and community technology centre alongside other bookable spaces, making the facilities easy to access if you are spending time in the Oberon CBD.”
