LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Cygnet Library car park
Did you know that the car park in front of the Cygnet Library is a private car park owned by the Department of Education and is only for people who are using the library?
It is becoming a regular problem that the library car park is full of empty cars, but the library is not as full of people and our clients wishing to use the library have nowhere to park. This is a problem that affects many of our regular library users and limits their ability to access our services.
At Cygnet Library we have a significant local membership of older residents and young families who should be able to park in our car park close to the library. Young families are often juggling small children and babies, as well as bags of library resources. Some of our our older members use walking frames or sticks. Cygnet Library is a very busy small library. One way that some members work around our ‘smallness’ and limited quiet study space is to access the library WIFI from the peace and quiet of their car in the library carpark. We call it the ‘car office’. Many reports, assignments and job applications have been written and submitted in this space.
If you are in Cygnet and wish to enjoy some time in a local cafe or business or catch a bus out of town, we ask that you do not park your car in the library car park. Please use one of the council car parks instead. Thank you for your consideration.
Our opening times are:
Monday 2pm to 5pm
Tuesday 10am to 5pm
Wednesday 1pm to 5pm
Thursday 10am to 5pm
Friday 10am to 6pm.
Free WIFI access is available from 6am to 9pm every day.
