Manningham Council has launched a community survey to inform growth and improvements to The Pines Library services.

Manningham libraries have one the highest rates of physical book-borrowing in Victoria, and Council is keen to build on this success by gathering data on the community’s library needs.

The Pines Library opened in 1987 and has around 165,000 visitors a year, making it the second-busiest library service in the municipality.

Manningham Mayor, Cr Michelle Kleinert said, “Contemporary library services are highly valued by communities and play a vital role in meeting the needs of migrant and multicultural communities and combating social isolation.

“They provide a safe haven for work, study and socialisation for people of all ages, and can also be a hub for accessing Council services in one location.”

The Manningham Council Plan 2021-2025 outlines goals and priorities to deliver better outcomes for the community.

“Well maintained and utilised community infrastructure is a goal to enhancing Manningham’s liveable places and spaces and we’ll use your feedback on The Pines Library to continue to improve and grow our services,” Cr Kleinert said.

The survey takes two minutes to complete and closes on Wednesday 19 October. Have your say now.
