Library visitation numbers change

Brisbane City Council wishes to advise residents all 33 Council libraries will allow up to 1 person per 2 sqm at any one time, in accordance with State Government regulations.  

Enhanced safety and social distancing measures remain in place.  

The number of people permitted within individual libraries at any one time will be contingent on several factors, including floor size. Please observe signage at the library entrance for details of a library’s capacity limit. 

The number of people permitted within individual libraries at any one time is contingent on: 

  • floor size  
  • configuration of different spaces 
  • distances between shelving, joinery, furniture, computers and service areas 
  • paths of travel within each library 

Library operating hours differ across branches and customers should check the opening hours of their local library before attending. 

Brisbane City Council is working closely with the Australian Government and Queensland Health and is following their expert health advice to help minimise the transmission of coronavirus.   

As updates are available, they will be included on Council’s website. For more information visit www.brisbane.qld.gov.au or phone Council on (07) 3403 8888.
