City library open to visitors for a six-month trial
CITY of Wanneroo started a library review and a Sunday opening trial at Wanneroo Library this month.
October 7 marked the start of the six-month trial to open Rocca Way library seven days a week.
Free services at the facility include the e-library and connected computer facilities, as well as programs and events geared towards early learners through to seniors.
Mayor Tracey Roberts said the library would open on Sundays from 11am to 3pm until March 31.
“Our libraries already see more than 8000 people every week, but Sunday openings will offer increased convenience for current library-goers and also encourage new visitors to call in,” she said.
The City will review the opening hours of other libraries pending the success of the Sunday trial.
It is running a survey on library opening hours until December 15 to guide future trading days and times at all the City’s libraries.
Staff are expected to report to the council on the survey results in February 2019 and announce any changes that result next April.
