Re the article ‘‘New library move’’ (Leader, July 15).

Hurray! At last someone on the council has seen some sense. 

A new branch library at Kirrawee – how great is that.

I am a baby boomer and do not like medium or high density housing. 

However, if we must have it then there needs to be lots of community spaces for people to gather together. 

I was dismayed when I initially read the community space at the brick pit was to be used for retail and the public park seems to be getting smaller by the minute. 

Adults and children need places to play both indoors and outdoors.

Well done Kent Johns.

Gymea would be a better bet. Kirrawee is so close to Sutherland library already.

The population of the shire has grown so much in the last few years but there have not been any new branch libraries built to keep pace with the growth. Many suburbs do not have easy access to a library.

What a joke. I belong to a not-for-profit community-based club that has met at Sutherland Library for the last 13 years.

Because of pressure, rent increases and not allowing us book our dates ahead we have had to leave. Library for the community (a joke). It all about the money. Sutherland Shire Council and the library should be ashamed.

Although the Sutherland library is up the road ... this is still a good use of space for the community.

You can’t forget how many units and dual occupancy living is being built in the shire. One main library in years to come won’t be enough.

There are thousands of residents coming to South Village alone.
