When you imagine a library, you may be thinking of a traditional place to borrow books, but in the modern world, a library has to be so much more. Imagine a community brought together by learning and discovery. A community inspired to connect around a vibrant hub, built on a vision of inclusivity and resilience. A community that thrives and grows around a centre point of shared experience and knowledge. Such a library can become the beating heart, where healthy communities connect and flourish.
We really do see libraries differently. Myli libraries are not just physical spaces, we put a focus on virtual and flexible services. We cater to the present whilst anticipating the needs and expectations of future generations.
We are driven by our vision to connect and innovate. We know that staying relevant is the only way to engage a community. These needs change over time, and we must have the agility to foresee the future, be ready, and adapt.
We know that quality outcomes are a must. Our leadership aims to exceed all expectations. We demonstrate how innovation can be achieved and we add value to communities every step of the way.
Myli is on an exciting journey of growth. The Board in partnership with the Leadership Team are developing long-term strategies to support the growth of the Myli brand, revenue diversification, service partnerships, joining company members and the expansion of services.
More information can be found in Myli’s Prospectus.
