The Agnes Water facility celebrating an important milestone

ONE of Agnes Water's most popular community hubs is celebrating a double decade milestone this weekend.

The Agnes Water Library turns 20 years old on Saturday, with a number of activities planned at the venue in celebration.

There will be a special First Five Forever event with Bettina Nissen, including storytelling, rhymes and more.

There will also be a number of party games and of course cake for everyone.

Mayor Matt Burnett said the facility was an important landmark for residents.

"The library at Agnes Water plays an important role in the community," he said.

"Aside from all our items available for loan, the library is a meeting place for community members and visitors.

And the good news is the library is continuing to grow.

Council said it was planning to introduce a second outdoor sitting and activity area as well as moreprograms.
