Background

 

Tonight I have the privilege of acknowledging Wilma Bancroft, Georges River Council’s Manager Library Services who is embarking on a sea-change and will leave Council on Friday 11 October 2019.

 

Wilma has dedicated her life to the provision of quality library services, having started her career in her early 20s at Sutherland Library Services. Wilma also worked at Wollongong City Council, University of Western Sydney and Botany Council before taking on the Library Manager role with the former Kogarah Council in 2009. 

 

Most recently, Wilma was appointed as the Manager Library Services following the proclamation of Georges River Council in 2016, effectively managing 5 libraries across the LGA. Since this time, Wilma has delivered a Library Strategy and revolutionised the way Georges River Council delivers library services. She has influenced the delivery of new technologies, innovative new collections and improved the customer’s experience. It is thanks to Wilma that our library services are recognised in the industry as best practice.

 

On behalf of the Councillors, General Manager, Executive Team and staff of Georges River Council, I wish to thank Wilma for her commitment to the Georges River community.

 

 

MOTION:

That Wilma Bancroft is congratulated for her dedicated service to Georges River Council.
