21st Century Libraries
Council is finalising an Armidale Regional Libraries Strategic Plan that aims to make our libraries more vibrant hubs where people can learn, join in group activities or just meet friends. We want to make the libraries a more central part of residents’ daily lives, to connect with one another and, through digital technology, the rest of the world.
The strategic plan was informed by a 21st Century Libraries community engagement, which asked people how they use the libraries and how they would like to utilise them in the future.

The engagement program included two community surveys, one for young people and one for the wider community.
