Bass Coast Shire Council has extended the closing date for applications from people keen to serve on the Advisory Committee for the Shire’s new principal library. The library will be built in the civic precinct in Wonthaggi and will service the network of libraries throughout the Shire. The closing date for expressions of interest to be part of the advisory committee has been extended until 14 September.

"This is the opportunity for people to shape the future of library services in the Shire," said Glenys Sharma, Council’s Community Services Manager. "As it’s a significant community project for present and future generations we are encouraging young people to apply as well. The project team welcomes their ideas for the use of the library to meet their needs in the future "

The role of the advisory committee will be to provide advice into the design of the building, help get the message about the project and its progress out to others and encourage new users once the library is up and running.

Ms. Sharma explained that it was hoped the Advisory Committee would include representatives from a broad cross-section of the Bass Coast community.

The Advisory Committee will be selected on the basis of:

  • Geographical spread
  • Age representation
  • Communication, advocacy and marketing skills
  • Knowledge and understanding of providing information services, including the Internet, into the future
  • Individual’s involvement in a range of community interests.
  • Expression of interest forms are available at all Council’s Customer Service Centres, by calling Council on 5671 2211 or 5951 3311 or on Council’s website at www.basscoast.vic.gov.au
