COVID-19 - Temporary Closure of Branches

Source: Central Coast Council
Posted: 25 Mar 2020
Effective immediately, all Council library branches will be closed to the public until at least Thursday 30 April 2020, in response to the rapidly evolving COVID-19 coronavirus and the most recent government directive to shutdown non-essential services in New South Wales.

This decision has not been made lightly. Councils priority during this uncertain time is to help protect the health and wellbeing of our community and staff. You can read the full Council statement on Council's website.

All outreach services and events continue to be suspended until at least Thursday 30 April.

Council have extended all current loans until Thursday 30 April, with click and collect reservations coming soon.

The after-hour chutes remain open, excluding The Entrance branch which is closed until further notice. If you have any enquiries, please .

Council apologise for any inconvenience and thank you for your understanding and patience during this time.

The eLibrary is always open

Council are here to support the community's learning and recreational needs no matter where you are, so even though branches are closed, online services remain open 24/7.

Council have just announced a new partnership with State Library NSW to provide you access to another eBook platform, indyreadsTM, which along with the other eBook platforms can be accessed through the Library Service app. Simply search Central Coast Council to download for free from the App Store or Google Play or visit Central Coast Council elibrary

Council will continue to investigate options to expand the online collection in response to increased demand and are looking for new ways to bring you events online.

In the meantime, you can continue to connect, relax and learn while practicing social distancing with free access to:

  • ebooks and audiobooks through OverDrive and BorrowBox
  • eMagazines with RBDigital
  • online homework help for students from Year 3 all the way through to tertiary studies with Studiosity
  • six hours of ad free music streaming with Freegal
  • learn a new language with Mango
  • eFun for kids coding for beginners with Scratch
  • the best Australian children's titles being read aloud to you by your favourite Australian storytellers with Story Box Library.

If you have any questions or need help setting up these services please contact your local library who will be able to step you through the process.

Keep up to date

Council are monitoring information supplied by NSW Health and Federal authorities daily and will provide updates to the community regularly as information comes to hand.

We encourage you to stay up-to-date with the latest information and advice from NSW Health.

As the situation is moving quickly, Council will continue to update their Helpful information on COVID-19 web page with the latest information on interruptions to Council services
