“Hands off Goodwood Library” petition.

May 22, 2015

More than 1400 people, all but a handful from suburbs within the Unley  area, have signed a petition calling for Unley Council to back down from any proposal that would affect Goodwood Library.

The petition, which will be presented to Council at its meeting next Monday, May 25  , was organised by Ms M Kolusniewski of Goodwood, who has requested permission to address Members.

In an officer’s comment  on the petition it is pointed out that in March this year a library services review was presented to  Council, which endorsed an undertaking to INVESTIGATE a number of possible options…. There has been NO decision to close any book  library, but Council is currently considering ways of optimising the layout of both Council libraries. One of the “givens” is that all current services offered to the community are retained and provided in the best possible manner.

One possible change could be the amalgamation of the two Toy Library services, currently housed at Goodwood and the Civic Centre.

Meanwhile, the Administration has clarified the situation,  saying that this is all in the early stages of a consultation programme.

To quote that good old British wartime poster… KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON.

    what the $#!&^%$ was Council thinking … about closing Goodwood Library and selling off the front section as a cake shop?
    Absolute stupidity.
    Full marks to this active local person getting a petition together.
