Mildura Weekly : Friday January 27 Vol 11 No 12
NEWS 5 FRIDAY, JANUARY 27, 2017 MILDURAWEEKLY.COM.AU THE future of the Irymple Library service hangs in the balance following a Mildura Rural City Council recommendation to close the service. At an Ordinary meeting this week, Council voted on several recommenda- tions based on a report that looked at the sustainability and engagement of the Millewa, Irymple and Mallee Track ser- vices. The report found that Irymple Library patronage had declined over several years, despite the town growing in population. The recommendations put to Council outlined that Irymple Library would close and be replaced with an alternate library service model for the area, such as a home library service. Other recommendations included the development of a place-based library in Ouyen, Murrayville and a weekly pop-up library service to Underbool, Walpeup, Werrimull and Lake Cullulleraine. Irymple Library’s annual operat- ing costs are currently $73,454, and if all recommendations are implemented, Council expects the total savings to be $200,000 each year. Community consultations will begin next month to determine if recommenda- tions supported by councillors this week are also supported by residents.
