Library Out and About van is ready to go

Gladstone Regional Council’s Library Out and About van will visit its first destination, Baffle Creek on Monday. (Feb 1)

Council’s Arts & Culture portfolio spokesperson Councillor Ren Lanzon said Council was pleased to launch the Library Out and About project to extend its library service across the region.

“The service aims to reduce isolation by providing access to material and digital resources via a collection of library services,” Cr Lanzon said.

“Designed along the ‘pop-up’ concept, the library resources will be delivered by library staff, using the existing Home Library vehicles.”

Made possible with a grant from the State Library of Queensland, the Library Out and About van will visit Baffle Creek, Wartburg and Rosedale one week and Nagoorin, Ubobo and Builyan the next week.

“Visits to each area will be on a fortnightly basis and those visiting the service will be able to borrow books, magazines, audio books, DVDs and CDs,” Cr Lanzon said.

“During the year, digital resources will also be added.”

Cr Lanzon said those using the service would be able to reserve books and other items online for delivery on the day of the visit.

Library Out and About visits are scheduled for Mondays in designated weeks at the following locations and times:

•    Baffle Creek Shopping Village, Coast Road – 10.30am
•    Wartburg State School, Coast Road – 12.15pm
•    Rosedale Memorial Garden, James Street – 2pm
•    Nagoorin State School, Ubobo Street – 10am
•    Cedarvale Road (next to hall), Boyne Valley – 11.15am
•    Builyan State School, Gladstone Road – 1pm
