Friends’ parting generosity to support City Library programs

As friendly gestures go, it’s hard to top the Friends of the Toowoomba City Library group’s parting gift to Toowoomba Regional Council.

Members of the disbanded Friends recently presented $14,000 to Council for use in ongoing Toowoomba City Library programs.

TRC Library and Cultural Services portfolio leader Cr Tim McMahon said similar acts of generosity were a hallmark of the Friends’ work over the years.

“The volunteer group lived up to its charter to ensure the welfare of the library and the residents who valued its many services,” Cr McMahon said.

“Their final act of generosity, in line with their constitution, is gratefully accepted and will be used to support the Home Library Service, in addition to youth engagement programs and events.
