Libraries to expand person limits and services

All 33 Council libraries will allow up to 20 people inside a library.

To observe the limit of 20 people at any one time and minimise waiting time, customers are only able to: 

  • access and browse the library collections – customers will be asked to sanitise their hands before handling any collection items on the shelves
  • limited internet access with 15-minute express sessions. Printing and mobile printing services are available
  • return borrowed items through after-hours returns chutes 
  • pick-up holds when ready for collection – no hold fees apply.

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

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