Libraries one of our most valued assets

Cr Julia Leu knows the value of libraries – and she has recently been appointed to the Library Board of Queensland as the local government representative, and as Chair of the Public Libraries Advisory Group to the Library Board.

Libraries are often reported to be a communities’ most valued local government service, and they are changing – keeping up with trends in technology, maintaining diverse collections for loan, and offering innovative and creative programs.

In the December/ January edition of the Local Government Association’s publication Council Leader, Cr Leu reflects on the impact of libraries, and shares some ideas for Councillors to work more closely with this valued community asset.
