COVID-19 restrictions currently apply when visiting the Library – updated 20th April 2021

Currently the  Library will be open:  Tuesday,  Thursday and the 1st & 3rd Saturday of the month with sessions from 10-12.30pm and 1pm-3.30pm.  The Library will close at 3.30pm. 

In accordance with the NSW Health checklist for libraries, you must provide your details for the purposes of contact tracing. This information will be deleted after 28 days. On entry to the Library, you will scan our QR code with your ServiceNSW app and your temperature will be taken.  We have hand sanitiser throughout the Library and encourage you to clean your hands regularly whilst in the Library.  Masks are recommended in the Library, except when a physical distance of 1.5 metres can't be ensured we then require masks to be worn. So for instance when you are consulting with a volunteer both the volunteer and the member should be wearing a mask.

Social distancing rules still apply and the kitchen will not be available to members.

We appreciate your patience as we work under health guidelines.

We have introduced an online booking system for computers, film readers, fiche readers and reading tables at our Library at 2/379 Kent Street Sydney NSW 2000.  This allows us to manage our capacity and undertake a full clean between each session.  The kitchen will not be available to members.
