Following a complete lack of patronage this year for the Elizabeth Vale Shopping Centre mobile library stop the Library has decided to discontinue this stop. This decision is based on the best use of our resources and matching our service to areas of demand. Our final visit to this stop will occur on Thursday 18 April at 1pm.
