Blacktown City Council has partnered with Landcom to bring its Blacktown City Libraries’ Mobile Library service to Tallawong.
The program was officially launched by Blacktown City Mayor Tony Bleasdale, OAM and Landcom CEO John Brogden.
“Our Mobile Library is an extension of Blacktown City Libraries, reaching out to commuters and being there in places where people gather and might not be able to get to one of our other great libraries.” Mayor Bleasdale said.
“The Mobile Library now operates at 10 locations once a week for periods of between 2 and 3 hours, offering members book loans, access to library resources, returns and collection of reserved items.”
“Landcom is proud to be able to support Blacktown City Council’s Mobile Library, which will bring locals together to enjoy great books in a peaceful new outdoor setting near Tallawong Station,” Mr Brogden said.
“This collaboration between Blacktown City Council and Landcom’s Sydney Metro Northwest Places, is a great example of how, together, we can build and nurture diverse, sustainable communities by providing essential services in leisure destinations with easy access to public transport”.
The Blacktown City Libraries’ Mobile Library will be at Tallawong Pocket Park every Friday from 11am – 1pm.
Other locations include; Seven Hills, Quakers Hill, Schofields, Doonside and Rooty Hill railway stations, as well as a number of community hubs and neighbourhood centres.
