Far North res­i­dents are be­ing asked to share their ideas on how the district’s li­braries can evolve to face the chal­lenges of our chang­ing com­mu­ni­ties in the com­ing decades. The Far North District Coun­cil sur­vey is open un­til Septem­ber 20. Spokesper­son Dr Dean My­burgh said li­braries are a vi­tal com­mu­nity re­source that also act as com­mu­nity hubs and meet­ing places. ‘‘Look­ing to the fu­ture, our li­braries need to evolve to meet the di­verse needs of our com­mu­ni­ties. More in­for­ma­tion is now avail­able on­line and this is chang­ing how peo­ple use our ser­vices. Th­ese changes also raise ques­tions about af­ford­abil­ity, ac­cess and how we can best con­tinue to as­sist lift­ing lit­er­acy and ed­u­ca­tion lev­els.’’ Visit
