Monash Public Library Service


Monash Public Library Service Community Survey

A new three-year strategic plan is being developed for the Monash Public Library Service, with a focus on opportunities for life-long learning, social interaction, and cultural exchange.

The plan will build on the strengths of the library service, which records about 1 million visits per year. In annual surveys, Monash residents regularly rank our libraries as one of Council's highest performing services. Opening a neighbourhood library in Mulgrave was one of the major achievements reached during the life of the current strategic plan.

Ideas and feedback are sought by Thursday 2 April 2015.

Everyone who participates will go in the draw to win an iPad mini on April 7.

Thrive on 2 & 5

2 and 5 logo

Did you know that eating two serves of fruit and five serves of vegetables a day can help you thrive? Yet in the City of Monash, only 4% of adults meet the dietary guidelines for fruit and vegetables!

The Fresh Monash Thrive on 2 & 5 campaign promotes the available sources of fresh fruit and vegetables in Monash.

To learn more about healthy eating and caring for our local food system, book a place at one of our Thrive on 2 & 5 workshops.

All travellers have favourite places. The Library Bag visits Waikiki beach, Hawaii in 2014 for some sun and play. The Bag has been spotted there before, under the trees.
