Local News: Partial Opening of Public Libraries

Due to COVID-19 and the State of Disaster restrictions, the City’s libraries were closed from end of March. Permission has now been granted by Minister of Arts and Culture to partially re-open some libraries.

Not all libraries and services can be opened immediately due to the Lockdown Level 2 restrictions to minimise the risk of exposure to the virus.

The following services will open from Wednesday, 16 September 2020

  • Study facilities at libraries listed below.
  • Limited number of students allowed to adhere to social distancing.
  • Two slots per day Monday to Friday: 9h00-12h00 and 14h00 to 16h00
  • Online research questions answered
  • Virtual Libraries
  • Circulation services at identified libraries
  • Drop and collect.

Patrons can either phone/email the library to request books. Librarians will select the books and put them together. These can be collected at a specific arranged time. All the books returned will be put in quarantine for at least seven days (7).

Unfortunately, due to the logistics and exposure NO computer facilities can be used. Patrons can use their own devices in the study facility through the Wi-Fi connectivity.
