Adjusted Library Services

As Western Australia enters Phase 4 of the Covid-19 roadmap, the easing of restrictions is allowing us to open in the evening and on the weekend again. 

As part of this, we will also be offering an adjusted library service, including:

  • Running an enhanced Home Library Service, to ensure the most vulnerable in our community are still able to access library services.
  • Stronger, face-to-face customer service presence.
  • Meeting room spaces will be converted to seating for the community. 
  • PCs and printing, with more computers being brought online.
  • Greater focus on community-led, and run, events.
  • A partnership with UWA to provide study space and tutoring - click here for more details.
  • Participation in the "Light Up The Mind" Beanstack challenge - read 600 minutes this winter and log your time in Beanstack.
  • Access to LibraryCraft, a supervised Minecraft server. You can find out more here.

Covid-19 Phase 4

From Saturday June 27, Western Australia will enter Phase 4 of the Covid-19 Coronavirus roadmap.

From Tuesday June 30:

  • We will no longer have to collect contact information as you enter the library.
  • Capacity is determined by the 2sqm rule - we ask that all patrons observe physical distancing while in the library.
  • We will maintain quarantine of library items until we are advised by the State Library of Western Australia that this is no longer required.
