Campbelltown library bus unplugged

Campbelltown City Library has hit the road, travelling to local events, services and schools as part of the Library Unplugged outreach program.

Powered by a new Renault Kangoo electric van, Library Unplugged was launched during the recent Ingleburn Alive event.

Council says the van will initially target developing areas, community events, aged care facilities and isolated residents, with plans to extend the service to community groups and organisations in the future.

“The new e-van will bring services out to the community and ensure people who may not be able to get to one of our library branches are able to enjoy our inclusive and accessible programs,” said Mayor, George Greiss.

“One of the major priorities of our Library Strategic Plan, identified through consultation with our community, was to deliver more outreach services which is why we have launched the Library Unplugged service.

“It’s also a great step in ensuring Council services are sustainable and we are reducing our emissions as an organisation.

“This new e-van is not only a great step in bringing our wonderful library services to isolated areas of our community, but also a wonderful step in achieving Council’s Net-Zero emissions target,” he said.

The project is funded through the Public Library Infrastructure Grants program administered by the State Library of NSW on behalf of the Library Council of NSW.
