The new Clarence mobile library will soon be on the road.
Funded by a State Library of NSW grant, the newly-fitted-out van will provide a technology-focused service and will even put in appearances at the Clarence Valley’s bricks and mortar libraries. The van will feature 3D printing, virtual reality goggles and much more.
When operational, the library on wheels will visit:
- Brooms Head and Wooli – 10am-noon, alternate Tuesday mornings
- Lawrence and Minnie Water – 2-4pm, alternate Tuesday afternoons
- Halfway Creek and Nymboida – 10am-noon, alternate Wednesday mornings
- Glenreagh and Coutts Crossing – 2-4pm, alternate Wednesday afternoons
- Brushgrove and Copmanhurst – 10am-noon, alternate Thursday mornings
- Tucabia and Baryulgil – 2-4pm, alternate Thursday afternoons
To check the full schedule, phone the mobile library operator on 0409 457 606, Grafton library 6641 0100 or visit www.crl.nsw.gov.au.
Regional librarian, Kathryn Breward, said staff are in the process of organising the interior and stocking it with new books and equipment.
“It will have books, technology classes, virtual reality and 3D printing capabilities,” she said.
“As part of the revised service, some of the stops are moving. The mobile library will continue to visit fortnightly but the locations, days and times will change for some stops.
“The times are also changing to improve access. The new two-hour stops will allow for more events and activities on the mobile library. All visits will now be either 10am-noon or 2-4pm.”
Library members can check how the changes might affect them by contacting the mobile library operator on 0409 457 606.
