A new report has shown that Canberra hosts some of the best library services in Australia, which may be of interest to those looking to buy Belconnen real estate.
According to the Australian Library and Information Association, Canberra libraries provide a greater return on investment to its community than any other area in the country.
"We know that our libraries contribute a significant amount to our community, and it's good to see how well we compare to other libraries from around Australia," said state director of libraries Vanessa Little.
"In this day and age, libraries are about more than books, and they provide direct and indirect benefits to the community through the services and programs they offer."
Residents of Gungahlin real estate and the surrounding suburbs can enjoy the many programs and events that the libraries host – such as guest speakers, child programs, workshops and discussion groups.
Libraries are just some of the great community facilities that Canberra provides to its many visitors and residents. From good schools and universities, to parks and medical services, the Canberra city council has accommodated to the needs of its residents.
