Libraries to reopen their doors

Following yesterday’s release by the State Government of the roadmap for easing COVID-19 restrictions, we are delighted to advise that the Glenelg and Brighton libraries will reopen their doors to the community on Monday 11 May.

Please note that, in line with Government guidelines, there can be a maximum of 10 patrons (excluding staff) in each library at any one time. Visitors are reminded to follow social distancing and health advice by keeping 1.5m apart, maintaining personal hygiene by regularly washing/sanitising hands, and not visiting the library if they are unwell.

With visitor numbers reduced to ten people at a time, visitors are encouraged to keep visits to the library short to enable the libraries to accommodate as many visitors as possible throughout the day. The majority of library services will be available including the browsing and borrowing of books and resources, and there will be two computers in each library available for use. However library programs and events will not currently be held in the libraries.

People can still access a wide range of resources and programs online, including eBooks, eAudioBooks, and eMagazines – visit
