Canberra libraries close Wednesday

Share Canberra's trusted news:

ALL Libraries ACT branches and the ACT Heritage Library will be closed Wednesday, February 28, for the annual Libraries ACT Planning and Development Day. 

Director of Libraries ACT Vanessa Little says the Annual Planning and Development Day is an opportunity for all staff to come together and contribute their thoughts and ideas in planning for future services, programs and initiatives.

“Libraries ACT are open every day, except public holidays, and this is the only way library staff can all meet to plan a better library service,” she says. 

“This closure will include the Home Library Service, the Access Canberra driver license service located at Civic Library as well as Archives ACT located at Woden Library. Regular programs, including story time and Giggle & Wiggle, will also not run on Wednesday. 

“However, online services will remain available for library users. This includes searching, requesting and renewing any items online as well as downloading digital material (eBooks, eAudio, magazines and music). Library items can be returned using the return chutes located outside each Libraries ACT branch.

“All library services will return as normal on Thursday, March 1.”
