Formed in 1970, the library service has expanded in the past 50 years to include ten branches and service points, catering to a population of nearly 70,000 and covering an area of over 25,000 square kilometres.
To celebrate 50 years, the library is giving patrons the chance to win a free Love Your Library KeepCup. To be in the draw for this prize, simply visit one of the library's ten branches or the library website during November and complete an entry form, detailing why you love your library in 50 words or less.
