Shoalhaven Libraries have unveiled a new six-month timetable for its Mobile Library Service, adding four new locations and making other timetable adjustments after a recent service review.
The new timetable now includes stops at Conjola Park, Manyana, Kings Point and East Lynne after receiving feedback from the community via a recent online and hard copy survey.
Shoalhaven Libraries Manager Sarah Taylor was thrilled with the community response to the service review and was pleased to see the Mobile Service adapting to changing community needs.
“As the city changes and grows, new locations need to be considered. The addition of Bayswood to the 2019-20 timetable proved very successful, so the four new stops in the southern Shoalhaven are bound to be of value.”
“We received a survey response from a customer, commenting that it would be lovely for the library to visit Conjola Park after the horrid bushfires and bring some normality to the town. We are humbled to think that we can help the community by offering this service and we look forward to seeing some new faces at the four new Mobile Library locations.
“In addition to the new locations, the service review revealed that whilst many primary schools now have well stocked permanent libraries on site, community preschools required library materials and visits.
“By making the school and preschool visits rotate on a monthly basis, we could broaden the reach of the service throughout the community, including an additional 14 preschools to the schedule.” Ms Taylor said.
