Babinda Library is getting an internal re-paint! But so we're not knocking people out with paint fumes, the library will be closed from Friday 4 September, reopening on Thursday 17 September. Members can borrow up to 30 items to tide them over during the closure, or memberships can be used at other Cairns Libraries branches. The after-hours return chute will continue to be available and items borrowed from other libraries can be returned at the Babinda branch. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

One lane on Collins Ave will be closed on Tuesday from 7.30am to 3pm. This is so we can get some mulch on to the garden beds and have them looking their very best for the upcoming Carnival on Collins (which is on 6 September, if you're wondering). Please be careful if driving in the area. Apologies for any inconvenience.
