Library upgrade complete

The library now has self-service radio-frequency identification technology, which is in line with the City of Melville�s Future Plan for Libraries, Museums and Local History Services 2010-2015.

The plan identified a community wish for revitalised library facilities, more modern, zoned spaces in the City�s libraries and a shift towards technology.

It is the fourth of the City�s libraries to be upgraded since 2011.

Mayor Russell Aubrey said the new RFID self-service technology meant library users could be more independent, with no more waiting in queues to be served.

�Customers can now check out their own items for loan, with the added benefit that staff can now spend more time assisting customers with enquiries and book selections,� he said.

�The upgrade also responds to the community�s desire for more space, with increased opportunities now for customers to read, study, learn and relax and for larger numbers to attend library programs and events.�

AH Bracks Library is on the corner of Stock Road and Canning Highway, Melville.
