The Nagambie Library has welcomed a colourful addition to the town’s landscape thanks to the unveiling of a mural titled ‘Nagambie Library is for Everyone’.
Local artist Trudy Oldaker designed the mural as a depiction of life in Nagambie while collaborating with Wendy Cook, Joan Loughmore, Nagambie Lakes community House, Nagambie Lions Club, GV Libraries and Nagambie Art Group.
Local MP Annabelle Cleeland attended the unveiling and said the mural will become a great attraction for locals.
“I highly encourage everyone to visit the library and take in the stunning mural,” Ms Cleeland said.
“This stunning piece of work, right at the library’s entrance, will provide a boost to everyone accessing the library’s wide range of services.”
Ms Cleeland thanked the local community groups and artists involved for their hard work on the project.
“This was a bit of a dream since before COVID. It’s been a long time coming for everyone involved and they should be incredibly proud of the finished product,” Ms Cleeland said.
“This is the culmination of 711 hours of design, drawing and painting of which Wendy Cook contributed an astonishing 97 hours.
“We all know the lifestyle, landscape and community in Nagambie is fantastic and this mural is a great testament to that.”
