Over the next month, we’re making changes to our Adult CD, Adult Audiobook and Young Adult CD collections. These changes are reflective of changing listening habits for the Compact Disc format, and consistent drops in usage for these collections over recent years. The changes are:
- Adult CDs – we are removing Adult CDs from all branch libraries, and consolidating them into the CD collection at Central library.
- Adult Audiobooks – we are removing Adult Audiobooks from branch libraries and consolidating them at Central library. In addition, we are removing the $3.00 rental fee, starting from the 31st of August. If you have a concession card for audiobooks, please talk with staff.
- Young Adult CDs – all CDs in the Young Adult collections will be removed from all libraries.
These changes will be in place from the 31st of August, providing branch libraries with more display space and the option of promoting other branch collections.
We will continue to support Central library collections for Adult CDs and Audiobooks, with customers being able to reserve titles from the Central library as required.
Please note, these changes do not affect other library Audio Visual collections such as DVDs.
