The Devonport Support Group, sponsor and organiser of the new Desk, has been anxious to provide this service for their community but with the demolition of the old public library JPs lost an appropriate “home” to set up in. With the new 7.8 million dollar library opened, the Support Group made arrangements to establish a Desk. Library staff members have welcomed the move.
“We are still a small group” says Support Group Coordinator, Jo Cliffe, “but the Service Desk will give a whole new focus for us all”.
(JPs may be lucky enough to meet Benjamin, the Library's resident cat, who in this State of the Art Library has his personal micro-chipped cat-door!)
