The City of Mount Gambier encourages community feedback on the draft Mount Gambier Library Strategy, a blueprint to guide the Library's services and development until 2027.
The strategy outlines the future focus of the popular community precinct with an aim to continue to impact the lives of locals and visitors in meaningful ways.
“The Library received more than 187,000 visitors this past financial year and delivered 799 programs. There were almost 250,000 loans, and almost 12,000 active members, so we know that our service is well loved throughout the community,” Manager Library and Community Development Georgina Davison said.
“That is why your insights and perspectives are crucial to ensure that this plan truly reflects the needs and aspirations of our community.”
Four key priorities are highlighted within the strategy, compiled following initial consultation with community and stakeholders.
“The priorities include reimagining places to deliver a vibrant Library precinct, connecting with our community to provide meaningful support and services, bringing quality of life to our community through Library experiences and strengthening the team to deliver innovation.”
“When reviewing the strategy, I encourage you to consider the following areas: relevance to diverse needs, inclusivity and considerations for diverse demographics, approach to technology and innovation, collaboration and partnerships, accessibility, both physical and digital and mechanisms for ongoing community feedback.”
