The City of Ballarat Libraries Outreach Service is visiting a new location in 2017.

 

The van will visit the Lucas Community Health Centre every Tuesday between 10am and 12pm.


The outreach service will no longer visit the Cardigan Village Community Centre, Kohinoor Community Centre and GPlace for reasons including the fact the facilities are moving, are undergoing renovations or the service has experienced low patronage.

 

The service will continue to visit Miners Rest, Warrenheip, Learmonth, Delacombe, Buninyong, M.A.D.E and the Midlands Terrace Retirement Village.

 

The City of Ballarat Outreach Service is an instant pop-up library service that visits locations within the City of Ballarat.

 

The library van houses a range of adult and children’s resources including books, magazines, audio visual and DVDs.

 

The resources are located on 14 trolleys and are wheeled into suitable locations and operate as a library service.

 

Patrons can borrow and return library items and request library materials from other libraries across the Central Highlands and Victoria.

 

Programs and activities are also carried out including story time, robotics, school holiday programs, digital literacy classes and other programs, including programs suited to the particular community’s needs.
