The future of libraries in the Camden area will soon be set with the draft Camden Libraries Strategy 2021-25 now on public exhibition.
The Strategy, which has been developed in partnership with the community, sets out the strategic framework for the delivery of Camden Council’s library services across the Camden area.
Mayor of Camden, Cr Theresa Fedeli, said libraries had evolved from being a place of books and information.
“Libraries play an important part in our community as a place that inspires creativity and lifelong learning also being a place to bring people together,” Cr Fedeli said.
“In a sense they also provide a greater understanding of other perspectives and cultures, a safe and free public space and providing a place for everyone in the community.
“It is important that we work together with the community and respond to the changing needs of our residents with opportunities to learn, connect, share stories and experiences.
“We would love to hear your thoughts on what you would like your libraries to provide and offer.”
The draft Strategy will be on public exhibition until 4pm on 21 May 2021.
