House Delivery Service

This service will be offered only to those who live within the town limits, please see the above Click and collect/delivery service instructions. The town will be divided into two just like our garbage collection. You will be notified when your delivery will take place. Deliveries will commence the week of Monday 13 April. If you do not have internet access, please contact the library on 6343 1334 and we can organise a delivery for you.

Delivery instructions

Delivery will entail you leaving your returns in a bag on your front step and the library staff member will swap over the bag for a new one with stock. We will not knock on the door.

Message for those wanting to join the library during COVID-19

As of Wednesday 14 April, for those who are not library members but would like access to the eResources including BorrowBox and Story Box you can now join online via the library website.

Please note that this does not give you access to the physical collection.

School holidays are currently underway and the below are a couple of fun competitions to keep you occupied.

Topic: What I did during the school holiday during social isolation.

Did you have a birthday or helped celebrate someone’s birthday? Face time with family and friends to stay in touch. What fun and creative activities did you come up with to stay occupied? Do you have any siblings to help pass the time? Have you wanted to run away and hide as they are so annoying?
