Information about reopening

 

The health and safety of our community and staff remains our highest priority as we re-open libraries and resume services. This means there are changes to the way our libraries operate, including strict hygiene and physical distancing rules. Here is what you need to know.

  • The number of people in public spaces is 1 per 4sqm, with capacity limits as follows:
     - Brunswick Library: 100 people
     - Campbell Turnbull Library: 20 people
     - Coburg Library: 100 people
     - Fawkner Library: 75 people
     - Glenroy Library: 100 people
  • For contact tracing purposes, you will need to check in using your mobile phone and the QR code on display (you may need to download the Service Victoria app). If you do not have a smart phone, please see library staff who will be able to take your details using your library card or name and phone number.
  • There will also be some other measures in place – things like taking card payments only, increased cleaning, borrowing only via the self-service kiosks, and returns only via the external returns chutes. These measures will be signposted and communicated upon entry.
  • If you are unwell, do not visit. We cannot stress this enough.
  • You can reserve items in the library catalogue, or you can call us to arrange the reservation of items. You will receive an email when your items are ready to collect.
  • You can return items through the external returns chutes at all libraries. We strongly encourage you to practice good hand hygiene in the library and after handling library items.
  • A limited number of PCs will be available. We are not able to help you use the PCs unless we can do so from a 1.5 metre distance.
  • Photocopying, scanning and printing facilities are available.
  • Groups of up to 10 people may still meet at the library, but group study spaces are not available. Limited individual study spaces are available. 
  • Due to limits on group sizes in public places, events will continue to take place online where possible. In-person programs are postponed. For full details, check our What's On.

We thank you for your continued understanding, patience and support as we reopen libraries and resume services.
