What does the next page for your local library look like? That’s the big question Murrindindi Shire Council is asking everyone in our community, so that together, we can develop a Library Strategy and Action Plan 2022-2026.

Whether you are a current library member or haven’t been into the library before, Council is inviting you to complete a short online survey and share what you love - or would like to improve - about your library. We’d also like you to give us your ideas for new services we could offer from our libraries or new ways of delivering our library service.

Council’s Community Engagement and Wellbeing Portfolio Councillor Damien Gallagher said our libraries are important community hubs and play a critical role in providing a social space, learning and entertainment opportunities, and in providing access to a wide variety of information and services for people from all walks of life.

‘Council is committed to offering the best possible library services to residents – and needs your help to write the next page in our libraries’ story.

‘Whether you visit the library a few times a week or haven’t ever stepped into a library – Council wants to hear from you!

‘Council wants to understand what you love about your library – or what you would like to see changed or introduced. And, if you’ve never had the pleasure of visiting one of our libraries, what would it take to encourage you to come through our doors? All ideas are welcome, big and small.’ Cr Gallagher added.

You can complete the survey online via The Loop, where you’ll also find more information and inspirational ideas about what other libraries are doing. Alternatively, you can drop in to one of Council’s libraries, including the mobile service, to complete the survey with the help of our friendly staff. The survey is open until 22 May.

Council officers will also be hosting pop-up kiosks where you can complete the survey and chat about any ideas you may have. Pop-ups will be held at MiRa Marysville (10 May from 2.00 – 4.00 pm), Eildon FoodWorks (12 May from 10.00 am – 12 noon), Kinglake FoodWorks (18 May from 2.00 – 4.00 pm) and Yea FoodWorks (20 May from 10.00 am – 12 noon) and Alexandra FoodWorks (21 May from 10.00 am – 12 noon).
