The Yorke Peninsula Council and District Council of the Copper Coast have committed to working together to look at services which are currently available to our respective communities and identify opportunities to improve these even further.Currently in the Yorke Peninsula Council area there are four school community libraries with 8 depot outlets across our Council Area, all of which offer a variety of different services.The Copper Coast has 3 services located at Kadina (joint use TAFE/Community), Wallaroo (joint Council Office/Library) and Moonta (joint use School/Community)
To try and achieve a more coordinated approach across our library services, our Councils have been working with libraries, schools and SA Public Library Services, to determine how best we can ensure we are meeting specific local needs as well as enabling our communities to embrace new technologies.We are eager to build on the success of the One Card initiative and initiate a conversation within our communities regarding library services and what people would like to see in both Yorke Peninsula and Copper Coast libraries in the future.
In conjunction with the Public Libraries Service, a generic community survey has been developed which is being distributed across a number of targeted communities throughout South Australia and has been designed to identify what individual communities want from a public library service and how the technology which is currently available might be able to assist in the provision of a library service.
The survey can be completed online in less than 10 minutes and is accessible from your local Council Website or School Community Library Website or by going to https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/Local_Library_Planning .Should you wish to complete the survey in hard copy, a list of locations has also been provided.
The deadline for completion of the survey is Friday, 15th May 2015
We encourage all community members to complete this survey whether you are regular library users or have never set foot in any of our local libraries; we want to hear from YOU!The more information we receive the better we are able to tailor a library service which suits your needs.If you are a visitor to our community we would also love to hear your thoughts on what you would like to see when travelling around our beautiful region.
The survey should be fairly self-explanatory, however if you have any questions at all please contact your local library service or Dr Kristine Peters, KPPM Strategy on 0409 603 663 or www.kppm.com.au
