Queensland Health requires that everyone entering a library, regardless of age, provides their contact details in case contact tracing is needed. While in our libraries, please follow directional signage, maintain good hand and respiratory hygiene and practice physical distancing. Capacity limits are in place, with all Queensland public library limits determined by public health advice issued by the Queensland Health.
