Hurstville City Library Museum & Gallery (LMG) strives for
continuous improvement to its services and facilities. The LMG also embraces
opportunities to work with individuals, groups and organisations on outreach
projects in the Hurstville Local Government Area and beyond.
The LMG is currently working on the following projects:
Customer Service Initiative
September 2014, Hurstville City Council launched a new after-hours initiative
at Hurstville City Library that enables residents and ratepayers to access a
number of Council services outside traditional business hours. The service is
available Monday to Friday 5.00pm to 9.00pm, and Saturdays and Sundays 9.30am
City Council and Hurstville City Library Museum & Gallery are committed to
providing the community with innovative ways to conduct their business more
efficiently and effectively.
Redesign of Library Spaces
The LMG have been working with Red Rollers and
our community to redesign the library floor space of Hurstville Library.
Hurstville Library’s toilet facilities have also recently been upgraded.
Previously, the LMG have upgraded the Hurstville
Library and Penshurst Branch Library service desks to improve customer service.
Hurstville Entertainment Centre
The LMG works closely with Hurstville
Entertainment Centre to present
collaborative programs, events and shows.
Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD)
The LMG have developed a CALD strategy
document which nominates focus areas, goals and determines strategies for
LMG staff to effectively engage with local CALD communities from 2013 – 2016.
The strategy also sets annual objectives, focuses on meeting CALD community
needs, assesses emergent community requirements and promotes continuous

digitising previously uncatalogued photos from the LMG’s collection. The
photographs are gradually added to the library catalogues and harvested by
