  • use the hand sanitiser provided as you enter and exit the Library
  • practice good respiratory hygiene
  • practice social distancing by maintaining a 1.5 metre distance between yourself and others.

When you visit our Libraries, you will find:

  • hand sanitiser provided as you enter and exit the library
  • social distancing markers internally in front of service counters and throughout the Library aisles
  • some seating, and interactive displays have been removed or moved to ensure compliance with social distancing and hygiene measures
  • preference for contactless payment methods
  • acrylic screens across service counters
  • additional cleaning of Library facilities during the day, including public toilets.
