Name needed for new centre

WITH Council's $460,000 conversion of the old Kilcoy Shire Council chambers into the Somerset Region's biggest and newest library, the old Kilcoy library at 13 Kennedy Street has become available for community use.

To celebrate the occasion, Council is asking the community to submit a name for the old Kilcoy library building that will reflect its new place in Kilcoy community life.

Please submit your suggestions by close of business Tuesday, August 31, 2010 to Somerset Regional Council at either PO Box 117, Esk Qld 4312 or to mail@somerset.qld.gov.au
