What do you want our libraries to look like, feel like and be like, in the future?
Campbelltown City Council is developing a strategic plan which will be used to guide the future provision of library services in our city – and is encouraging community input to help shape the plan.
The community is invited to have their say via a survey which can be found online at campbelltown.nsw.gov.au/ourlibraries, or in hard copy at Council’s four library services. Interested community members can also learn more and provide feedback at one of five community forums.
The development of the plan will provide Council with an opportunity to explore the needs and expectations of the community, to look at emerging trends in libraries and to respond to different generational needs.
Mayor of Campbelltown, Cr George Brticevic, said libraries play an important role in our community, and encouraged residents to share their vision for our libraries.
“Libraries are not only a place to learn and read, and access books and information, they provide a place for the community to bond over activities, including Storytime for preschoolers or English conversation classes,” he said.
“It is vital that our libraries adapt as our community grows and changes, and Council is calling for input to ensure our library services best meet the needs of our community into the future.”
Survey participants will have the chance to win one of four $50 gift cards from Visa, Zing Pop Culture, Hobbyco or Gametraders. The survey closes at midnight on Sunday 7 May.
The community forums will be held at:
Greg Percival Community Centre, Ingleburn on Monday 24 April, 6pm-8pm
Campbelltown Civic Hall on Wednesday 26 April, 10am-midday
Glenquarie Library on Thursday 27 April, 3pm-5pm
