Community – What does it mean? We are all part of ‘the community’ whether we choose to engage in it or not and the community we live in has an impact, positive or negative, enabling or limiting, welcoming or segregating. One really good way to create community is to have a strong community cultural centre and library service that is accessible and meaningful to all residents. The library firstly holds historical records so that you can see how our community developed. The modern library is, of course, about much more than books. It is and should be a community hub providing an activity space for all. Council is currently undertaking a Library Service Needs study and wants to hear what the community thinks. The survey will take less than 10 minutes and can be found on the Website under ‘News’
