The parents’ room at the Echuca library was awarded a five-star rating from the Australian Breastfeeding Association on Monday.
Campaspe library services manager Jenny Mustey said the ABA had helped provide good examples of accredited facilities during the library’s construction.
‘‘The room has comfortable lounge chairs and cushions. It also has a change table, microwave, food preparation area, access to power and nappy disposal,’’ Ms Mustey said.
‘‘Since the regional library opened last August, the room has been well-utilised, with drink fountains and amenities also close and convenient.’’
Local breastfeeding counsellors Alicia Miller and Suzy Lenne also provided advice about the things parents appreciated, like having tissues available and books for toddlers to look at.
The library has also located its parenting collection next to the children’s area.
‘‘While children are enjoying reading and story time, parents have easy access to helpful resources,’’ Ms Mustey said.
Echuca Medicare also helped with the development of the room, with customer’s donations contributing to the outfitting of the room.
