Libraries close for a week
THE South Perth and Manning libraries will be closed from June 12-17 as the City of South Perth transitions to a new library management system. The new software system aims to deliver an improved user experience as well as enable library staff to deliver an optimised service. To facilitate a smooth changeover and allow adequate staff training, the libraries will be closed next week with limited service on June 8 as well. Both libraries will reopen on Monday, June 19. Items borrowed prior to the closure will have extended loan periods and 24 hour return chutes will be available at both branches. Some library events and programs will be impacted by the closure, with some online resources also restricted during this time.
