Gympie Regional Libraries have launched a free click and collect service that allows residents to reserve library materials online or by phone, then organise a time to collect the earmarked items.

This new service was created in association with stage 1 of the Queensland Government’s roadmap to easing COVID-19 restrictions, however several of the libraries services will not be available until further notice. 

Access to computers, meeting rooms, the local history room and the Gympie Library Makerspace will not be available, however Wi-Fi access outside of all libraries and online programing will continue.

Gympie Regional Council Community Learning and Engagement Manager, Rachel Lethem, says on-site access to the Gympie Library will be available from Monday, 25 May.

“To keep library staff and residents safe, social distancing and hygiene guidelines will be enforced. The library will also limit the number of customers in the library at any one time to a maximum of 10.”

“There will be no on-site access to our smaller branch libraries next week, however the click and collect service will have collection points at the Tin Can Bay, Rainbow Beach, Imbil, Kilkivan and Goomeri libraries,” she said.

Return chutes will be open to enable residents to return all library materials.
