COVID-19 updates

Due to the current increase in COVID-19 cases in our community, our services and programs may be affected at short notice. We thank you for your understanding if this happens.

Local government libraries are not currently included in the Queensland Government restrictions for unvaccinated people. However, in line with the current state-wide mask direction, you must wear a mask during your visit.

Queensland Health continues to require that everyone entering a library, regardless of age, provides their contact details should contact tracing be needed. We’re using the Check-In Qld app to help keep you COVID-safe when you visit. Don’t have a smartphone? We’ll be able to help you check in.

While visiting our libraries, please follow directional signage, maintain good hand and respiratory hygiene and practice physical distancing.

We look forward to seeing you on your next visit!
