The Library closure has been extended
NSW Health announced on Thursday 16 that due to ongoing concerns about community transmission, stay-at-home orders in place for regional NSW will be extended by two weeks, until at least 11:59pm on 10 September, in line with existing orders for the Greater Sydney area.
Everyone must stay at home unless they have a reasonable excuse to leave. They also cannot have visitors in their home from outside their household, including family and friends.
This means that I will be contactable by telephone and email; however the Library will be closed for over the counter assistance until further notice.
This is a challenging time for us all, we apologise for any inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience as we work together to reduce the risk of the spread of COVID-19.
Due to the new restrictions starting on Monday 16 August I can only offer a delivery service within the town limits. You must already be a library member to access this service. Please check the library website https://grenfellpubliclibrary.org.au for further updates.
