Construction of the new facility will commence shortly after to ensure that this centre is servicing our community as soon as possible. The centre will not only retain library services including books and digital services, but will also expand the facilities located at Edwards Park by providing amenities that will allow residents in the south of Strathfield to participate in meetings, activities, classes and functions. Finally, as we draw closer to World Youth Day 2008, I would like to remind people that Council is hosting a free live telecast of the Papal Mass this Sunday at Strathfield Park from 9.30am. I hope you can come along and be part of this momentous occasion. The current Branch Library will close on Friday, 18 July. Council apologises for any inconvenience caused. To keep disruptions to branch library services to a minimum during the construction stages of the new facility, the following arrangements have been organised: • Weekly bus service to transport people to and from High Street and the Main Library in Homebush from Monday 21 July • Monthly community bus service to the Main Library to pick up people from High Street on the first Wednesday of the month • Branch Library users offered the opportunity to become temporary home library service clients where a personal profile is developed and resources delivered and collected from their homes at agreed times • Branch library users given extended loan periods and increase in borrowing limits • An outdoors return chute located at the High Street site For further information on library services, please contact the Main Library on 8762 0222.
