The Port Macquarie-Hastings Council has launched its new mobile library cart.

It is equipped with a full range of material for both adults and children.

The first stop is every second Wednesday and Thursday between 10 a.m. and 12 p.m. in Sovereign Hills on Sovereign Place and the Lake Cathie Community Center from November 25th to 26th.

“The new van is designed to bring library services closer to our community. The great thing is that you can use your current library card or log into the van,” said Jim Maguire, library manager.

“It offers a wide range of library services in miniature form, and items that are not available in the van can be requested through the library app and picked up at other branches.

“The van service is seen as an interim solution until physical library buildings can be set up in these two growth areas.”

From the first semester of 2021, the van will again visit smaller rural schools and will also be used for cultural and communal events.

The new library cart was made possible by the New South Wales government through the Regional Cultural Fund.
