Bega Valley Shire Council has concluded a review of Council’s library services in response to changing demands, expectations and opportunities for libraries.
The internet and digital resources have raised our customer’s expectations where libraries are no longer just a place to borrow books, but multipurpose community spaces that offer high quality technology and information services.
As part of the review, it was recommended that the library staffing structure be changed in order to meet these changes and be in a position to constantly evolve.
Manager of Community, Culture and Information, Simon Schweitzer, said the restructure is significant as it positions Council to deliver a comprehensive schedule of programs across all four libraries, as well as delivering high quality library services, unerpinned by good customer service.
“In partiuclar, we have increased staffing levels at Eden Library which means that the Eden library will no longer be closed during lunchtime,” he said.
“We have also introduced a dedicated Programs and Partnerships Officer who will work with the community to deliver a schedule of programs across the library network.
“We are extremely excited by the opportunities ahead for library services and look forward to more members of the community visiting and taking advantage of the excellent services we provide” Mr Schweitzer said.
