Community comes together, for all different reasons
By definition a hub is the centre part of a wheel, propeller or fan, and also a centre of activity, so it is no wonder Aberfoyle Park's local library is called "The Hub".
This venue, built by the City of Onkaparinga and run by a dedicated team of employees and volunteers is so much more than a library, it is as its name claims: a centre of activity, where young and not so young enjoy a little bit of everything.
Endless items from newspapers, movies, CDs, magazines, audio books, children's books, home energy kits, jigsaw puzzles, toys and even sports equipment neatly line the shelves of this fun and colourful maze.
The Hub provides users with free wireless network, computers with internet, scanner, fax, printer and photocopier services, which is extremely handy for people who don't have these resources at home or those who study or work online and need a bit of company or a change of setting.
Little ones can interact with others in a library setting and learn how the lending system works from a young age. The toy library is a great way to keep rotating your kid's toys, teaching them to be careful with them and look forward to their next library visit when they return the old toys and choose new ones. It is also a great way to save money and reduce plastic wastage!
Studying or working online shouldn't be lonely or boring.
The Hub offers diverse activities for all ages: baby and toddler story time, book sales and discussion groups, knitting group, mobile phone and battery recycling, Justice of the Peace services, brochures about other local community services and tax assistance for low income earners.
With a 24/7 online catalogue, you can view, choose and put items on hold from other libraries across the state and pick them up here. Visit and explore this friendly space in Adelaide's Southern Suburbs .
