NEW FUNDING AND UPGRADES TO PORT MACQUARIE LIBRARY

You can go for a ride on a roller coaster, swim with sharks or rocket through space, without ever leaving Port Macquarie.

Virtual reality has made it possible, with the local library officially opening its new innovation portal.

“Virtual reality is an area of growth and I think a lot of young people are interested in it but it’s also a way that people can come up with their own programming and technology and enjoy that space” – Cameron Morley – New South Wales Library

Eight new study rooms and an outdoor reading area have also been constructed as part of a $196-thousand expansion.

The state government also announced funding for Port Macquarie-Hastings Council to buy a new Library Van.
