LGMA (Local Government Managers Association) NSW Management Excellence Award - Highly Commended Award in the Special Project Initiative Category

The Community Learning (Branch Libraries Project)

This award recognises a council which has developed a concept or practice that significantly improves the business in which they work. The new branch libraries at Castle Cove and West Chatswood represent the unique combination of libraries with community learning facilities within aged care complexes. The opening of these community learning facilities has provided local communities with not only their first local public library service, but also a 21st century take on the ‘village green.’
