Review of Library Opening Hours

At the March Council meeting the City agreed to continue trialling Sunday opening hours at the Wanneroo Library on Sundays.

In response to community feedback the City also agreed to trial Sunday trading at both the Clarkson Library and the Wanneroo Regional Museum.

Sunday opening hours is between 11am and 3pm at all three facilities.  There has also been an adjustment to the Museum closing time on Thursday,  from 5pm to 4pm.

Girrawheen Library has been aligned to the Two Rocks Library, with opening hours on Tuesday evenings changed from 8pm to 5.30pm with opening hours on Saturdays extended from 12 noon to 1pm.

These changes will be trialled for 12-months from 1 July 2019. 

In summary, the revised opening hours of the Libraries and Museum will be as follows:

  • Clarkson: Mon, Tues, Wed & Fri 9am-5.30pm // Thurs 9am-8pm // Sat 9am-5pm // Sun 11am – 3pm

I am now aged 82, went to "school" in the U.K. during the War, spent a lot of nights in Air Raid shelters, so my education was minimal. But in spite of this I served an apprenticeship, got married, had kids, 2 of whom went to Uni, I was invited to come and work in Oz, worked for C.I.G. as a welding instructor, taught hundreds of people how to weld to the worlds highest standards, I think I was able to do all this, via the "education" I got through using library's in the U.K. (no T.V. in my day) I also spent 12 years in the Kimberly as a foreman Boilermaker in the worlds biggest diamond mine. Library's for my generation was the ONLY way we ever learned anything, and a way out of poverty, I'm not sure of their relevance to to-day generation, in my day we had Radio (BBC still the WORLDS BEST) and Books. To-day kids still have access to these, but they also have access to Dozens of other ways to waste their time, The worlds WORST invention is the mobile phone, I don't have one, ? Am I unique ? But everyone else does, and some seem to spent their ENTIRE day gawping at their phone, Most know only know about 100 words in English, Most have never, will never read a book in their entire lives, I had a library ticket from the age of 6, As did my kids, and all my grand kids, I don't use library's now, Because at 82 reading is a bit difficult, But there is no need now, I can, and DO, download Podcasts from the BBC, and Radio National in Oz, Put these onto an M.P.3 players or a C.D. then listen to Radio's finest while walking round the local park, or whilst in bed, waiting to go to sleep. My generation used Library's every day. and was entertained, educated, amused, but I think the future for them now is limited to my generation, How many young people have a Library ticket to-day, ? Hope they stay open, and more people use them, ESPECIALLY the young, but how many are using them now ?? Hope this helped. If so I'm willing to do anything else that may be of help.
