Mobile library service has been extended
THURINGOWA’S mobile library is on the move and expandingits service to cater for residents livingin the city’s fastest growingsuburb.
Startingfrom January 17, the mobile library will visit Bushland Beach every second Wednesday from 9.30am to 12.30pm at Peggy Banfield Park, near the roundabout on Lynwood Avenue and Goicoechea Drive.
Council’s Community and Environmental Services Committee chairwoman Cr Jenny Lane said about 5000 visits were made to the mobile library last year.
‘‘We have now expanded our service to Bushland Beach as the population of the suburb has increased in size over a relatively short period of time so the demand now warrants its own mobile library stop,’’ Cr Lane said.
She said there was also new openinghours for the Upper Ross PCYC mobile library stop every second Wednesday from 2pm to 4pm.
‘‘The mobile library has been going to the PCYC for about three years now and I think the new times reflect the changing needs of the community and the younger population who use the facility,’’ Cr Lane said.
The library also visits Deeragun, Toomulla, Bluewater, Saunders Beach and Rollingstone.
‘‘It’s about convenience and takingthe wonders of books and knowledge out into the community,’’ she said.
‘‘A wide range of people use the mobile library, includingretirees, children, carers, people on shiftwork, teachers and youngadults.’’
The mobile library is closed, and will reopen at Deeragun on January 8.
