GYMPIE REGIONAL LIBRARIES TO CLOSE IN RESPONSE TO COVID-19
Gympie Regional Council wishes to advise that all of its 6 libraries will close to customers from Monday 23 March until further notice.
Customers will be able to return borrowed books by using the after-hours return chutes, however, council’s preference is for customers to hold onto their books until the libraries re-open. Your items have been extended until 30 June.
Council’s Online Library will remain available 24/7 for users and offers access to thousands of eBooks, eAudiobooks, eMagazines and music and video streaming services. Residents without an existing membership can contact the library for a digital membership from Monday to access the eLibrary collection.
Wi-Fi facilities will remain free and accessible around library buildings during normal operational hours.
The Home Library service for the aged, frail or disabled will continue. Council is also investigating other models for service provision.
If you want to chat to us we will still have staff available during working hours to answer emails (email@example.com), phone calls (54810859) and Facebook messages (https://www.facebook.com/GRLibraries/)
Gympie Regional Council is working closely with Queensland Health and the Federal Government and will continue to be guided by these agencies on all matters of public health.
For more information or assistance to access to online services call Gympie Library on 5481 0859.
