Kiama Library was one of the first public libraries in mainland Australia to be connected to the National Broadband Network (NBN). The NBN has opened up a plethora of opportunities for our regional community and as a result our library has facilitated a number of new health services, such as headspace Mental Health consultations for youth and providing and supporting Telehealth equipment, and has investigated many potential new educational library programs, such as connecting to the collection conservation programs at the National Museum of Australia and facilitating virtual tours of their Landmark Gallery.
