Pop- up li­braries to pub­lic

Southern Telegraph - - NEWS -

The City of Rock­ing­ham’s pop- up li­braries are set to spread the joy of read­ing as they make their way around the com­mu­nity.

The li­braries of­fer res­i­dents the chance to en­gage with the ser­vices out­side of the tra­di­tional set­ting at a va­ri­ety of lo­ca­tions, giv­ing those who might not usu­ally in­ter­act with a li­brary the chance to do so.

Pop- up li­brary stalls are op­er­ated by coun­cil staff and res­i­dents can ask ques­tions, bring their iPads or other tablet de­vices for demon­stra­tions of eBooks and eMovie down­loads, or can sim­ply at­tend for a friendly chat.

“Here at the City we un­der­stand that not all res­i­dents may be able to ac­cess a li­brary, so we are de­lighted to be able to bring a small part of the li­braries to peo­ple in­stead,” Mr Sam­mels said.

The pop- up li­brary events will be held at Mike Bar­nett Sports Com­plex from 9am- noon on Tues­day, Fe­bru­ary 26 and Thurs­day, Fe­bru­ary 28.
