Sunshine Coast libraries set to re-open


Sunshine Coast libraries will re-open their doors to a limited number of customers at any one time from Monday May 25.

Sunshine Coast Council Mayor Mark Jamieson said the safety of our community and staff continued to be at the forefront of decisions made by council.

“When our libraries re-open on May 25, a total of 10 customers will be permitted inside our library branches at any one time.

"They’ll be able to pick up reservations, choose and borrow library items".

“The library Click & Collect service remains available for Sunshine Coast library card holders, and the community is reminded to make use of the library’s extensive online programs and eLibrary service.

The only exception will be Maleny Library, which is currently undergoing refurbishment and will not re-open until next month (June, 2020).

A limited Click and Collect service will be available at that location.

“We look forward to welcoming customers back to our libraries, but remind everyone to please be vigilant as we keep moving towards a COVID-safe society.

“This includes adhering to social distancing requirements, good hygiene and not attending if you are feeling unwell.”

Returns chutes are available at all libraries and Wi-Fi remains available.
