Library to open more days from 29th June!

Libraries in the Goulburn Valley are on the comeback trail from the COVID-19 shutdown! All Goulburn Valley community Libraries will extend their hours of operation from Monday 29th June including the return of Saturday mornings.

We are excited to announce that all our community Libraries will be open on additional days to the public next week. Since re-opening on 1 June, we have been gradually increasing our services and monitoring our capacities to ensure our communities can borrow and use our computers as safely as possible. We have been open with a maximum of 20 patrons in our library spaces from 1 June and we will increase the capacity limit when allowed by the government.

CEO of Goulburn Valley Libraries, Kevin Preece said, “This is great news for our communities and staff who have been very patient while waiting for the restrictions to ease. We are adopting a cautious approach and only increasing our opening hours and services when it can be done safely. While we are open, we are only encouraging people to come and borrow from our great on site collections, pick up a reserved item or use our on site computers for a limited
time.

Patrons will be expected to continue to physically distance and maintain good personal hand hygiene as has been the case since re-opening. All returned books are cleaned before going back on the shelf and personal computers and high use surfaces are regularly cleaned.

Our opening hours will vary from our pre COVID hours and are reduced to ensure adequate time for staff to sanitise the library. The mobile library will not return to service yet as we cannot provide safe physical distancing within the limited mobile library space. Mobile library patrons can arrange alternative borrowing and delivery by contacting us on 1300 374 765.”

Patrons are still encouraged to make use of our on-line services that have taken off while people are in isolation! We have a huge range of FREE eBooks, eAudiobooks, eMagazines for adults and kids. People can join online and get access straight away. We also offer video streaming of movies and documentaries through our Kanopy streaming service. Why pay for
Netflix!
