Have your say on the new Draft Woollahra Libraries Five Year Strategic Plan

At Woollahra Libraries, our vision is to ‘connect people with ideas’. To set out how we will achieve this vision we have created a Draft Library Strategic Plan for 2021-2026. You can view the plan by clicking on the first attachment listed in Document Library located on the left of this page.

Woollahra Council and the community created this plan through a series of engagement activities. During February and March 2021 we received 1,247 survey responses, spoke to sixty-four attendees of our focus groups and many more people at seven community pop-ups.

After listening to you, Council drafted a new five year Library Strategic Plan for 2021-2026 to shape the future direction, services and programs of Woollahra Libraries.

We have identified four strategic priorities to guide us over the next five years:

Nurturing lifelong learning, discovery and creativity.

Libraries are a hub for learning that the community engages with in different ways over their lifetimes. They will continue to support the community's need for research, study and play into the future.

Building an engaging and intuitive digital library.

Libraries have an impetus to create effective and engaging 'fourth spaces' that allow customers to navigate library services within a digital environment.

Enriching social cohesion and community wellbeing.

Libraries are safe and welcoming spaces that feel like and extension of home. They play a key part in promoting community wellbeing, integrating with Council's network of community facilities.

Contributing to local cultural and economic development.

Libraries are uniquely positioned as a cultural institution to lead development in local culture, history and arts into the future.
