"This will continue the regeneration of Thomastown through the development of a new modern library and community facilities which will act as a social and cultural focal point in the town. It's a great news story for Thomastown which deserves increased investment and I'm delighted for the Town and all who will benefit from it. Well done Thomastown!"
