New Library Management System
The City's libraries have recently gone live with a new Library Management System, LIBERO. Whilst the new software system will deliver an improved user experience, we are still learning. Library staff have now undertaken training and now continue to learn and discover the new software functionality.
Along with our new system, there are also changes being made behind the scenes to our Web Online Public Access Catalogue WebOPAC and online member area. There are elements that still require some tweaking but this service is now fully operational.
We are happy to assist you with any questions about loans, renewals, WebOPAC, reservations, etc. Let us know what you need and we will endevour to help you.
The City and library staff appreciate your patience during this ongoing period of transition and development.
Manning Library officially opened Jan 30 2017.
Address: 2 Conochie Crescent - free underground parking off Bradshaw Crescent.
Manning Library is part of the Manning Community Hub project. This community space is filled with comfortable seating to enjoy books or the WIFI and gives library users access to more public computers. The new technologically advanced library opened on January 30, 2017, offering a range of new services.
Please check our opening hours for amended Saturday hours.
The new library has four self loan stations with a staff terminal. The library is 100% self loan service with a staff member close by to guide you through the process.
If you are visiting Manning Library for the first time, a staff member is more than happy to show you how the self loan stations work.
A 24/7 returns chute is located on the Conochie Crescent side of the facility. For ease of access there are two 10 minute parking bays available near the Conochie Crescent entrance.
The 24 hour returns chute gives library members the ability to return items day or night. It gives members a receipt after checking in their items instantly. To ensure accuracy when recording your return, please insert three library items at a time.
In addition to our self service terminals, we have a membership desk and roving staff. This allows our staff to help patrons throughout the library, enhancing customer service. We believe this state of the art technology will improve the library experience.
