Now Adopted - Wollondilly Library Strategy 2020-2026

Library scene: four comfy chairs around a coffee table, shelves of books, people using computers


Now Adopted - Wollondilly Library Strategy 2020-2026

With the shire population expected to grow in the coming years, Wollondilly Library will move to a new larger building (on the same block), as part of the broader Cultural Precinct in Picton. The Wollondilly Library Strategy identifies the enhanced services and spaces our Library could offer, particularly during the transition time as it grows into that new space, as well as beyond.

Community input was an integral part of drafting this Strategy. We wanted to ensure the Library reflected cultural and community needs now and into the future, and that it supported opportunities for inclusion, connection, participation, creation, and literacy – in all its forms. We consulted with the community in two phases - the first phase was seeking input ahead of drafting the Strategy, and the second time was in the form of Public Exhibition where the community was invited to view the draft, provide comments, and take a survey on their thoughts for priorities. Thank you to everyone who provided input. We incorporated feedback, and the Library Strategy was adopted by Council in April 2021.


Consultation closed 18 September. For more information please call 4677 1100.
