Kingston Libraries Community Panel

The City of Kingston want to deliver a library service where our community can be connected to information, knowledge, resources, creativity and each other.

We’re inviting a random selection of residents to participate in a Community Panel to help us create libraries that meet the needs of our community.

Specifically, we want you to help us explore the challenge:

What key principles and priorities should guide Council in the delivery of its library services, to meet the current and future needs and interests of our diverse community?

Being part of the Community Panel is a chance for you – along with around 25 residents from across Kingston – to work with us to understand the current services that Kingston Libraries deliver, consider other library services, share ideas and make recommendations on how we best target our services and activities to meet the changing needs of our diverse community.

About the project

In recent years, traditional book collection-based library services have expanded to include technology and digital resources, digital literacy support and literacy events for all ages to support lifelong learning.

A Community Panel is being established to help Council develop a Library Strategy that will ensure Council can deliver relevant, contemporary library services and facilities that will continue to meet the evolving needs of the community.

The Community Panel will meet on four occasions:

  • Day 1: Saturday 16 March 10am – 1pm
  • Day 2: Saturday 30 March 10am – 1pm
  • Day 3: Tuesday 9 April 6pm – 9pm
  • Day 4: Tuesday 16 April 6pm – 9pm

It is important that members of the Community Panel are available for all four meetings. Meals will be provided at the panel meetings, and you will receive $250 in recognition of your time, and to cover any costs associated with participating.

Are you Interested? Register now.

If you are a Kingston resident and would like to join the panel, please register your interest by Sunday 24 February 2019 at deliberatelyengaging.com.au/libraries

Once the registration period closes, a process will take place to ensure the Community Panel represents a cross-section of the Kingston community.

Questions?

Recruitment of the Community Panel is being managed independently of Council. If you have any questions or need assistance please call Nivek Thompson from Deliberately Engaging:
