The search is on for Australia’s favourite library and if you love the Sunshine Coast Council’s libraries, you can help by nominating your local branch in Australia’s Favourite Library Competition.
Community Programs Portfolio Councillor Jenny McKay said libraries play such a vital role within our community and it is now time to let them know just how much they mean to us.
“We hear time and time again how much people love their library and now there is an opportunity for people to acknowledge what makes their library special through the Australian Library and Information Association Australia’s Favourite Library Competition,” Cr McKay said.
“We were delighted to learn Coolum, Maleny and Maroochydore libraries have already been nominated in the search for Australia’s Favourite Libraries, so now I’m calling on the Beerwah, Caloundra, Kawana, Kenilworth and Nambour communities to nominate their local library.
“This is our chance to really put the Sunshine Coast library service on the map of Australia.
“Anyone can nominate their library but you need to do so before March 14 so that it goes into the running to take out the top spot.
“Voting will then open on March 14 for library users to vote for their favourite library. This is when it will become competitive.
“Library users can vote by completing an online nomination form and describing why their library is Australia’s favourite. Voting closes on April 22.
“The winning library will be announced during Library and Information Week 2014 which will be held from May 19 to 25.”
