On the subject of the library and the services it provides, some years back Willoughby Council pulled out of the Shorelink service; the reason given was that this would enable the Library to implement initiatives it could not do while within Shorelink. Could you outline what these were and which ones have been implemented?
Can Willoughby get a click and deliver/collect library service? In addition to the Northern Beaches, Ku-ring-gai now offers a similar service.
As a consequence of the Council withdrawal from Shorelink, I became a member of more libraries and some services/initiatives Willoughby could consider include:
- North Sydney and Ku-ring-gai Libraries will hold (reserve) a book at no cost, provided it is on the shelf. And Ku-ring-gai will send the book to any of its 4 libraries for easy pick up.
- Stanton Library has philosophy discussion groups and marks World Philosophy Day which is pertinent as libraries are about learning/thinking.
- The State Library allows any member, not just students, to book its study rooms.
And finally, I have a question – why is it that Chatswood library does not open for a full day on Sunday?
