Our libraries provides access to free resources from books and online material to the Guyra Library’s 3-D printer. What, Armidale Regional Council wants to know, should the library of the future include? Council is asking 12- to 24-year-olds to complete a survey, as part of their 21st Century Libraries Strategy to modernise the Armidale and Guyra libraries <www.armidaleexpress.com.au/story/6283910/armidales-21st-century-libraries-strategy-begins-with-workshops/>.
“Young people will be using the library a lot longer than everybody else,” Cr Debra O’Brien said, “so we need to know what would make them use it.” “We’re not thinking tomorrow,” librarian Aimee Hutton said; “we’re thinking 10, even 20 years from now. Just think outside the box, and don’t be scared to share any little burning idea you’ve had.”
The survey is available on Council’s website.
