Libraries are much more than books

A new regional library is planned for the Parkside site at 123 Donnison St (This is a design concept, not the final plan)

[Forum] I write in support of the forward thinking proposal to build a regional library in Gosford.

Modern libraries are about much more than books.

They are resource centres, study and work spaces as well as learning based activity centres for all ages.

Given the large number of schools and the Conservatorium nearby together with the rapidly increasing number of apartments in Gosford, this facility is to be supported.

The library would be a safe space for children to await delayed parents, a break-out space for residents living in small apartments nearby and a much needed community space.
