Logan Cr Steve Swenson said libraries were an important part of the city.

"Whether you regularly visit our libraries or not, we want to know how they can continue to meet your needs," he said.

Council wanted the community to provide feedback on the draft Libraries' Learning and Discovery Strategy for 2019-2023.

"This plan will detail the programming and community learning to take place in our city's libraries over the next four years," he said.

"It is vital for the library service to maintain its capacity to deliver meaningful programming to meet the diverse mix of community needs and aspirations."

The 2018 Logan Listens: Residents' Survey identified that 84 per cent of residents were satisfied with council's libraries.

During 2017/18, 122,212 people took part in 8386 library programs with increased attendance at digital literacy and early years' activities.

Cr Swenson said Logan's libraries were at the heart of the community.

"The very reason for their existence is to inspire and assist people to make a positive difference to their lives." he said. "This includes providing welcoming accessible spaces for everyone at all stages of their lives."

The strategy sets out the road map for council's libraries' programming and community engagement over the next four years.

It also positions the city's libraries as a central focus for lifelong and self-directed learning and discovery contributing to the liveability and social well-being of Logan.
