Libraries reopening their doors on Wednesday, 1 July

The Lismore and Goonellabah libraries will re-open on Wednesday, 1 July 2020 after they were closed due to COVID-19.

The libraries, along with all those in the Richmond Tweed Regional Library network, will continue to be widely available online including the ability to access eBooks, eAudiobooks and eMagazines.

Popular pre-recorded programs such as Storytime, which are accessible on Facebook and on the library’s YouTube channel, will continue for the foreseeable future. Live author events will also continue in the Regional Readers Book Club Facebook group.

The Click and Collect service will cease on 1 July with physical branches reopening for you to select and collect items during opening hours. If you have any concerns about visiting library branches to select and collect items, please contact your local library staff for other options.

Richmond Tweed Regional Library Manager Jo Carmody said staff were excited to welcome back regular and new library users.

“There are some very important conditions the community needs to be aware of before coming to the library,” she said.

“Conditions which effect things like our opening hours, how many people can be in the library at any one time, and how staff are able to assist. There’s also many ways the community can help us all keep safe and well.”
