Yarra-Melbourne's City Library joins the LEP

The Library Extension Program is pleased to welcome a new member. The City Library replaces Yarra-Melbourne's Corporate Library in the LEP. The City Library is a brand new library, created by a joint venture between Yarra-Melbourne Regional Library Corporation and the CAE, and is unique in that for the first time in several decades the central area of Melbourne has a free public lending library. Situated in Flinders Lane, the library offers services for the whole community of Melbourne's workers, students, residents and visitors covering information, learning and recreation needs.

City Library was very keen to join the LEP and include ABS information in their comprehensive range of services. Currently they have a small collection of ABS titles as well as the CLIB 2001 product. They will soon be connected to the eLEP service to further improve access to the ABS for their library users. The library is very well appointed, with around 30 public Internet computers. Near the Reference collection are relaxing deep sofas and study tables where patrons can research in comfort.

I was so impressed that I joined up on my first visit!
