Noosa Council is taking its services to the people by expanding its current mobile library service.
The Noosa Council Mobile Library will now visit Lake Macdonald every Monday, from 1.30pm to 4pm, and Noosa Civic every Monday, from 8.30am to noon, as part of its new timetable. Starting from February 3, the custom-built semi-trailer will roll into town as part of a six-month trial timetable. Co-ordinator of Library Services Kerri Contini is excited about the new era for the service. ‘It’s great to be able to bring the mobile library to more locations, especially Lake Macdonald where there is a large hinterland reading community,’ she said. The Mobile Library will stop on Lake Macdonald Drive at the BBQ and playgrounds area adjacent to the Botanical Gardens. “Council recognises that people have very busy lives so, by bringing the library to Noosa Civic, we hope that people will make it their ‘one-stop-shop’, borrowing their books, CDs or DVDS at the same time as doing their shopping. “This change helps extend the reach of the library services into the community and make access easy.”
