Pioneer Library given new lease on life

Families, children, adults and history buffs alike will be able to enjoy the historic Seymour Pioneer Library for generations to come following upgrade works designed to breathe new life into the building.

The Library building itself is more than 130 years old and Mitchell Shire Council, in collaboration with the Seymour and District Historical Society, recently completed renovation and improvement works.

The original building was repainted to a colour scheme of sylvan green and mystique to give the space a brighter and lighter look, while the hardwood floor was replaced and polished.

Other upgrades to the facility include:

  • Toilet upgrades
  • A refurbishment of the storeroom
  • Ceiling improvements

The $33,000 project was funded by Mitchell Shire Council with the support of the Victorian Government’s Working For Victoria.

The general public will be able to access the building during meetings for the Seymour and District Historical Society from April – dependant on restrictions.
