Atwood Library Expansion Considered

The potential expansion of the Atwood library branch is gaining some high profile support.

The Elma Ward Business Community is asking North Perth Council to take another look at utilizing the municipally-owned building next door.

Chairperson Susan Boneschansker feels it’s the best option to address accessibility and space concerns. She also points out a recent survey indicated there is strong community support for enhanced local library services.

Boneschansker says many successful programs have been implemented, especially for children, but there is simply not enough space to meet the demand. She is hopeful the expansion of the Atwood library branch at the existing location will proceed.

The Chair of the Elma Ward Business Community counts firming up estimated costs among the next steps if North Perth Council decides in favour of the proposed project.
