Children drawn to new Glen Eden library

Children in the Glen Eden community are taking advantage of their new library, with 70 new members joining in the opening weeks.

A month into operation, Glen Eden’s new library and Citizen’s Advice Bureau has been welcomed by the community with a record 287 new members registered for free library services.

Unofficial door count numbers put six to seven hundred people a day through the facility.

An integrated learning centre has also proved a hit, with 415 users taking advantage of free internet, printing and software.

Since opening on 5 October, 1148 sessions and 38,282 minutes of internet time have been used. The public are encouraged to take advantage of these free services, that can allow up to five hours internet usage at any one time. Issues including books, cds, video and audio tapes in the first month were in excess of 20,000.
