Other service changes

Our Special Needs Library is now open for limited services:

While COVID-19 social distancing and other restrictions remain, we are unable to provide some services including:


During your visit, please follow directional signage, maintain good hand and respiratory hygiene and practice social distancing. Queensland Health requires you provide your contact details upon entry to a library, regardless of age, and that we adhere to the four square metres per customer rule. This limits the number of library members we can accommodate in each library at any given time. Please stay at home if you are unwell.
