Council libraries to reopen for limited services this weekend

Brisbane City Council wishes to advise that all 33 Council libraries will reopen from Saturday 16 May with a 10-person limit due to State Government regulations.

To observe the limit of 10 people at any one time and minimise waiting time, customers will only be able to: 

  • Return borrowed items through after-hours returns chutes
  • Pick up holds when ready for collection – no hold fees will apply

Residents are urged to continue using online library services where possible to avoid long queues and delays. All current and new loans are due for return on 30 June 2020.

All libraries will reopen with regular opening hours, with the exception of Brisbane Square Library as it will close at 6pm on Wednesdays and 7pm on Fridays (instead of midnight on these days).

Council encourages all residents to continue to practice safe social distancing and hygiene while using Council facilities.

As updates are available, they will be included on Council’s website. For more information phone Council on (07) 3403 8888.

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.
