HELENSBURGH Library is now open 39.5 hours each week – an increase of 15.5 hours on previous opening times.
Following feedback from more than 1,400 library customers and analysis of library usage, Wollongong City Council reviewed its opening hours across all seven libraries, with Helensburgh Library now opening from 10am to 1pm & 2pm to 6pm on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, and from 10am to 1pm and 2pm to 7pm on Tuesdays.
The library is open from 9.30am to 1pm on Saturdays.
Manager Library and Community Services Jenny Thompson said Helensburgh is a growing community, with a high number of families and a significant commuter population, so it’s important that there is good access to the local library.
“The library now has three computers for the public with free internet access and the library has free Wi-Fi for customers who want to bring in their own laptop or tablet and connect to the internet. Library staff also co-ordinate a free story time session for pre-schoolers each fortnight on Wednesdays at 10.30am.”
