Catching up with Caravan Parks - New Outreach Vehicles Timetables

Eastern Regional Libraries has expanded their Outreach Vehicle Service to include caravan parks, more retirement homes, public housing developments, industrial areas and train stations.

The Knox Flexi Vehicle will now be including Wantirna Caravan Park and Bayswater Railway Station.

Meanwhile, the Yarra Ranges Flexi Vehicle has added Brittania Ridge, Doon Reserve and Pinehill Caravan Parks to their schedules.

The new timetables have been in effect for approxinmately six weeks now - so how has it all been going?

Greg, our Manager of the Mobile Community Services, reports that this new mobile service has so far been well received, with lots of new memberships being signed up at each stop. Positive feedback has also included "What a great idea being more accessible to community housing" and "Love the new truck" and our personal favourite - that the truck itself was rather "cute".

Commuters, in particular, have also found the service at Bayswater Railway Station to be extremely useful.

"I was so surprised to see the library truck at seven in the morning," wrote Elise (28, sales assistant), from Boronia. "Being able to grab something for the train ride to work is so handy."

The new timetable for the Outreach Vehicles are now available.
