The much-anticipated redevelopment of MyALL 107 is underway in Dalby, with the Library now closed to allow for the temporary relocation of the facility to the Findex Building on Drayton Street.

The Dalby Library’s temporary home will reopen its doors to the public on Monday, 12 April 2021.

Mayor Paul McVeigh said it was exciting to see the wheels turning on this major project, which would deliver a landmark cultural precinct for the region.

“This is a massive project which is going to deliver an exciting, modern and reinvigorated cultural precinct for the region, which is going to be a huge benefit to our community for generations to come,” Cr McVeigh said.

“To allow for the upgrade of the facility, the Dalby Library is being relocated to the Findex Building further toward the CBD on Drayton Street.

“This will mean our community can continue to access library resources and services throughout the construction period, before the Library moves back into a fantastic new facility when the redevelopment is complete.

“We’re working towards opening in the temporary facility on Monday 12 April, and we are looking forward to welcoming the community back with fun activities and programs in a few weeks’ time.”

In the meantime, Library loan limits have been extended and online resources continue to be accessible 24/7 via the Western Downs Libraries website.

Due to the nature of equipment required and no access to a suitable alternative, the Dalby Cinema has closed for the entirety of construction and will reopen as part of the wider MyALL 107 reopening.

4DDD Community Radio will move to the Dalby Showgrounds. Council is currently working with all stakeholders to determine arrangements for Gallery 107 @ Dalby to utilise the Marble Street Arts Centre.
