The closure of The Entrance library branch will instigate an extension to our existing outreach
program which will see the mobile library set up at The Entrance on every Thursday at
approximately 1pm. This will provide all community members with access to library books,
magazines and other resources in our library collection. It will also attract visitors to the town
centre for the benefit of local businesses.
The Council Customer Service point will be available at the Visitor Information Centre (VIC) on
Thursdays and Fridays and Council staff are also investigating the possibility of relocating two
public access PC’s to the VIC to service the community of The Entrance.
An alternate library branch is conveniently located at Bateau Bay Square, less than 5 km’s for
those in the community who wish to visit a branch Monday – Friday.
To: The Hon. Shelley Hancock MP, NSW Minister for Local Government
Save The Entrance Library and Council Services
Overturn the decision announced by the Administrator (Mr Dick Persson) of Central Coast Council to close The Entrance Library and Council Services.
Why is this important?
The Library is a community literacy service, a meeting place, a technology hub and a support to education.
The Library also provides Council Services on site: payment for rates water and sewerage services; animal registrations; internet and computer access for those who don’t have such luxury at home; viewing of Council plans and policies; lodging a general inquiry to Council; and book clubs, knitting groups and mindfulness groups.
Please sign and share this petition! The Entrance community deserves a Library and Council Services venue.
You can also show your support of The Entrance library by making sure you pop in and borrow the twenty items permitted, or making a Council request using the Council Services.
