Shoalhaven council to trial opening school libraries to the community

Shoalhaven City Council on the NSW South Coast will trial opening school libraries to the wider community, reports the South Coast Register.

Councilor Bob Proudfoot, who is also a Vincentia High School teacher, suggested a trial at the school at a council meeting in June.

Councilor Andrew Guile said that taxpayer-funded centres should be open to the community, and opening the school libraries could help the council leverage underutilised resources. A vetting process to ensure the school libraries are maintained as safe spaces for kids was also discussed.
