LABOR COMMITS $7.5M TOWARD SANCTUARY POINT DISTRICT LIBRARY


An Albanese Labor Government will invest $7.5 million to build the new Sanctuary Point District Library.

The Sanctuary Point District Library will provide a hub for learning, collaboration, community functions and enabling greater access to books and technology. 

Positioned near the Sanctuary Point Police Station, the library will add to the list of wins that the community has campaigned for, and that Fiona Phillips has backed all the way.

This commitment follows extensive consultation from Shoalhaven City Council, who has released detailed plans and architectural drawings of the new facility.

Only an Albanese Labor Government will partner with the local community in delivering this much needed new facility.

Attributable to Fiona Phillips, Member for Gilmore

“I have been campaigning with the Sanctuary Point community for years on this critical investment for the Bay and Basin community.”

“As a TAFE teacher, I recall taking my students to the library at Sanctuary Point, and while well loved, it has been clearly too small and in need of an upgrade.”

“Sanctuary Point is a much loved community that fully deserves this infrastructure.  As a mum myself, I know how important it is for our young people to our elderly to have good access to libraries for their education and wellbeing.”

Attributable to Jason Clare, Shadow Minister for Regional Services, Territories and Local Government

"Fiona Phillips is a passionate advocate for her community, especially for important local projects like the Sancturary Point District Library.

This is another commitment in Gilmore that will deliver a better future for locals under and Albanese Labor Government.

Attributable to Catherine King, Shadow Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development

“Infrastructure isn’t just roads and rail, it also includes the social infrastructure that delivers a better life to Australians.

“This investment will deliver greater services and equity to this community, providing a new place for residents of all ages to learn and to grow – from the very youngest to the very oldest.

“Labor’s infrastructure investments will be about delivering a better life for locals, this is a prime example of just that.”
