Your safety is our highest priority

All of our staff are fully vaccinated. Conditions of entry include:

 

Proof of vaccine icon

Everyone aged 12 years and two months or older must show proof of COVID-19 vaccination* (or a valid medical exemption on an Immunisation History Statement)

You must check-in using the Service Victoria app (available on our iPads in branch)

The hand sanitizer provided must be used before entry to the library

Feeling unwell

Please do not enter the library if you are unwell

Face coverings are strongly recommended
Your Library strongly recommends that when you are interacting with our staff or other library users, you wear a face mask.
Although the restrictions have eased about wearing face masks there may be times in the library when you may not be able to socially distance yourself from other library users.
Be cautious and mask up!

Printing your certificate

We offer a Print & Collect service. You can send us your digital certificate and organise to have it printed and ready to collect when you arrive at the library.

Click & Collect continues

If you are unable to enter the library for any reason, you can still access our collections via Click & Collect. Browse, reserve, and arrange collection through the Your Library ERL app, or just call your local library.
