Help shape the future of Moonee Valley Libraries

Monday, 1 October 2018

Moonee Valley City Council is calling on people to have their say on local libraries and how they should look in the future.

A community survey is asking residents about what library services they currently use, how satisfied they are with those services, and what could be done to enhance their local library.

Moonee Valley Mayor Cr John Sipek said the survey is an important way of ensuring libraries continue to meet the needs of the community.

“It’s important we hear from people who use local library services regularly, but we also need to hear from people who don’t visit the library and their reasons why,” Cr Sipek said.

“This feedback will help us to develop long term action plans to ensure Council provides a flexible and contemporary library service which meets the needs of as many people in the community as possible.”

Portfolio holder for Lifelong Learning Cr Narelle Sharpe said libraries are special places for many people, but they need to keep evolving.

“The library can be where young children first develop a love of reading, while for others they can be places to use technology, access e-books online, hold a meeting or attend workshops,” she said.

“MV2040 identifies a need to support residents with lifelong learning and provide dynamic library services as part of community hubs. This feedback will help us achieve that.”

The Library Community Satisfaction Survey opens on 1 October and closes on 22 October.

The survey can be found on our Libraries page or any of our five branches. Those taking part in the survey go into the draw for a $250 Visa gift card.
