The Director: UM read the following response received in respect of the request for a fully equipped library within the boundaries of Ward 25:
“In a meeting held with the Director: LIS on 15 February 2019 it was reported that the Department is unable to provide any additional library services to the community in question over and above what is already delivered by our existing libraries.
It is becoming increasingly impossible to maintain our current service with the existing resources and the Department cannot accommodate requests for mobile services and satellite libraries at this stage.
However, as part of the departmental outreach programmes, the department is willing to provide a programme (in the form of storytelling session, reading programme, etc), to the Eureka Estate community, subject to the following conditions:
• The facility in Eureka Estate is managed and maintained by a person/persons suitably nominated by the Subcouncil
• The facility is locked and unlocked by this person
• (A) Security guard(s) is/are in place to ensure the safety of library staff
• The nominated person acts as liaison between the community and the library staff to ensure the programme activity can proceed, or take place
• The library programme or activity can only take place, provided that there are sufficient staff and transport available and the necessary equipment and any other resources required to deliver the programme/activity is available.”
The Director: UM advised that this request be listed as an IDP project and proper public participation processes need to be followed. He also said that a request can be forwarded to the Area Manager: Library Services to provide a satellite library service.
Cllr Van Reenen responded that a request for a library has been submitted as an IDP project, yet it was never prioritized and reiterated that the community of Ward 25 is in dire need of a library.
Cllr Esau shared the sentiments of Cllr Van Reenen and added that the community of The Range does not have a library in close proximity and therefore children of the area are unable to read or write.
The Chairperson said a meeting will be set up with the Mayoral Committee member: Community Services to discuss this matter.
