Nillumbik Shire Council Says...

Yarra Plenty Regional Library (YPRL) has a responsive collection building process and markets its collections actively. Loan figures for physical collections have been severely impacted by the closure of all branches to the public from 20 March to 30 June 2020 due to restrictions in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

YPRL Collection Framework sets out how we will provide a current and relevant collection. While new collection purchases were put on hold from 20 March to 30 June 2020 due to the closure of all branch libraries, we were able to keep the result above the KPI of 85%.
