Woollahra Library at Double Bay, Paddington Library and Watsons Bay Library will be operating a free Select and Collect service from 1 June, with computer bookings available from 15 June.
Full details can be found here.
Please do not visit Woollahra Libraries unless you have been contacted with an appointment as part of the Select and Collect Service or computer booking.
We have chosen to take a phased approach to opening, allowing customers to borrow safely from the library. Additional services will be offered when it is deemed safe to do so.
All books currently on loan will be extended until 12 July. We will not be charging any late fees if they are returned by this date.
We will continue to host a series of online events.
You can continue to stay connected to our libraries during this time of physical distancing and enjoy our free online resources with your library membership. You can download or stream a great range of eBooks, eAudiobooks, eFilms, eMusic and eMagazines by logging in with your member number and password.
For updates on Woollahra Council's response to COVID-19, please see Changes to our services. We want you to know you are not in this alone and we encourage you to reach out and seek the help you or the people you care about need. We have put together a list of phone numbers and resources we hope will support you.
