The libraries in Cootamundra and Gundagai are stepping up to the challenge of offering library services to the residents across the Cootamundra-Gundagai Regional Council area.
From Wednesday both libraries will be increasing their home delivery service and introducing a take away facility to library members.
CGRC mayor Cr Abb McAlister said it was a necessary measure to scale back direct access to our library buildings.
“Our libraries are for many in our community a vital resource, the decision to reduce public access hasn’t been made lightly, we have taken advice from the peak body, the Riverina Regional Library, in regards to the sanitisation of library articles. We will offer from Wednesday a phone in service where library members can phone in and have the option of either a take away service or home delivery service within the town boundaries,” Cr McAlister said.
The towns’ libraries will close the doors for public access on Wednesday 25th March, however access to resources will still be available through the take-away or home delivery methods. Library patrons are encouraged to phone the libraries on Cootamundra on 6940 2200, and Gundagai on 6944 0270, or via email, Cootamundra.Library@cgrc.nsw.gov.au or Gundagai.Library@cgrc.nsw.gov.au
