Library Survey

Link to Library Survey

Have Your Say about Your Local Library

Lithgow City Council is asking Library users and the general public for ideas on how to improve and adapt Library services throughout the LGA.

The community is invited to participate in an on online survey which aims to find out how the community is currently using Library services and to identify ways that the Library can continue to offer relevant and engaging services.

“Lithgow Library service, including the Portland and Wallerawang branch libraries, have been an important resource for the community for decades,” said Mayor Ray Thompson. “Times have certainly changed though, and the types of services provided by the libraries now are very different in this digital online world to what many of us experienced in the past.”

Click on this link  to take part in the survey which will be open until midnight Sunday 26 September 2021.

Council encourages the community to have its say. Anyone completing the survey will go in the draw for one of 3 x$100 gift vouchers for Harvey Norman Lithgow and one of 3 x $100 vouchers for Renshaw’s Pedal Project Lithgow.
