Tamworth's Best Practice Constructions Pty Ltd has been chosen by Liverpool Plains Shire Council to undertake the Quirindi Library Precinct redevelopment.
Mayor Councillor Doug Hawkins said the tender was great news for the community, which will soon see the redevelopment of the site into a community hub.
"This decision will facilitate the contractor establishing on site immediately and it is anticipated that the project will be completed in approximately six months," Cr Hawkins said.
Council obtained $900,000 in funding for the project: $200,000 through the NSW State Library, $350,000 through the Federal Government's Drought Communities Program and $350,000 through the NSW Government's Stronger Country Communities Program.
The balance of the project costs will be funded from Section 7.12 Developer Contributions and the Local Community Infrastructure Program.
Councillor Hawkins said the project will cause some disruptions and he requests motorists and pedestrians to be patient.
Parking bays in front of Service NSW will be closed off, and pedestrians asked to follow the signs.
The public toilets at the library site are also closed with an alternative amenities block in George Street.
