Libraries re-open | Goldfields Library Corporation

Our libraries are now open!

Now Open

Our libraries are beginning to open up even more! In line with State Government safety guidelines, we can now welcome up to 150 visitors. For most libraries, the limit will be smaller than this, but it means that you can now browse and visit the library for longer! You can also use the free Wi-Fi, use the public computers or just sit and relax. Of course, if we do happen to reach our limit, we may ask you to keep your visit brief so we can welcome others into our spaces.

Don’t forget, our librarians are also still here to help via the phone and email if you wish to stay at home, and we have some great online resources, programs and events.

Safety remains our top priority, so please remember to practice social distancing, use hand sanitiser and wear a mask. Please bring your library card or photo ID with an address.
