Residents will soon be able to access all twelve Council libraries using one card.

In the new financial year all 70,000 members will be moved to the one Library Management System – Libero – residents can check the catalogue, borrow, reserve and return at all libraries across the Coast. 

All Library fees have been reviewed and will be aligned across the libraries when the new system is in place. 

Council Group Leader, Connected Communities, Ms Julie Vaughan explained that previously Coast residents could only access either five northern or six southern branches, but the new system meant they would be able to access all eleven plus 2 community libraries in Gwandalan and Mooney Mooney. 

“Currently there are two systems in place – you need two cards to access the services which is a hassle and inconvenient and fees are different as well,” Ms Vaughan said.  

“Not anymore, in a few months either card will work at any library and new Central Coast Council cards will enable access to thousands of great resources and services anywhere on the Coast.

Australian owned and designed Libero Library Management System is already used in libraries in the former Gosford City Local Government Area. Libero has been chosen as the best option going forward due to its streamlined workflows and compatibility with many smart technologies including library eResource platforms.
