The Council should prioritise the continuity and constant improvement of our library services. The library provides a wonderful, accessible resource centre for all ages and stages of life, addressing information research needs, literacy, recreational reading, and in a range of media. . It engages and involves the entire community from small children to seniors and is more relevant and necessary than ever for promoting learning, social engagement and the sheer pleasure of reading. It could do even better with more resourcing and must be better funded.
