The City of Playford Library Service consists of two branches located in the suburbs of Elizabeth and Munno Para, as well as the Mobile Library Service and the Home Library Service. The new branch at Munno Para, called the Stretton Centre, will open late June or early July.
We provide a comprehensive library and information service dedicated to high quality customer service, innovation and the development of services in response to community needs.
The Playford Library Service is a member of the South Australian Public Libraries' 'One Card' network. This network connects all Public Libraries, and this means you are able to search and borrow items from other participating libraries as well as items already available at Playford.
New library to open at the Stretton Centre
City of Playford is proud to open the Playford Library Service at the Stretton Centre to the public on Saturday 1 August.
City of Playford Mayor, Glenn Docherty said visitors to the new Playford Library Service at the Stretton Centre can borrow from its collection, explore the new RFID technology in the venue and also access Council Information Services.
"The new library located at the Stretton Centre is a leading resource for information, education and recreation, responding to the ever changing needs of our community," Mayor Docherty said.
"The Library is committed to providing quality customer service, support life-long learning and instil the love and habit of reading for our children and youth."
City of Playford staff will be available to assist customers with enquiries. This will include proactive education on the use of the RFID technology.
RFID stands for Radio Frequency Identification Device, and it is the use of a small barcode to identify items using radio waves. This enables the customers to borrow out many items in one scan, and ensures a quicker and more effective service.
The Playford Library Service at the Stretton Centre will host an open day on Saturday 1 August between 10am – 2pm. There will be plenty of fun with children’s activities, story time with special guest, BBQ, merchandise, RFID demonstrations and cooking demonstrations.
The adjoining $5 million park is the centrepiece of the Playford Alive development, with exceptional playgrounds and will host the Playford Alive Skate Competition on Saturday 1 August.
The Mobile Library service has commenced temporary servicing the Stretton Centre. On Tuesdays the service will be from 11.15 am to 12.00 and Fridays 2-2.45 pm. Location will be the parking bays along the Skate Park, with exact location subject to parking availability.
