LIBRARY lovers will soon be able to enjoy extended opening hours as the Kwinana Public Library trials opening on Sundays.

Commencing February 4, the Library will be open seven days a week, including 12pm to 4pm Sundays.

A recent survey highlighted a demand for additional opening hours, with members saying they valued the convenience of accessing the Library outside regular business hours.

Weekends have already proven popular since Saturday opening hours were introduced in 2015.

Many of the Library’s most successful and well-attended events would take place on a Saturday, including author visits and children’s performances.

Kwinana Mayor Carol Adams said there was more to the Library than people might think.

“If you haven’t visited the Library in a while, it might be time to take another look,” said Mayor Adams.

“There is so much more than books – you can now borrow toys, comics, games, jigsaw puzzles, DVDs, music CDs, pedometers, engravers, home energy assessment kits, and more.

“There is even an enormous collection of video games available to take home and play.

“Even better – Library membership is completely free.”

Survey respondents said the welcoming feeling, the helpful staff and the huge range of recourses were the top reasons they enjoyed visiting the Kwinana Library.

The Library would continue to be a popular community hub in Kwinana, with more than 200,000 resources loaned last year.
