THE coronavirus crisis has forced the closure of ACT libraries as well as the heritage library to the public.
City Services doesn’t say for how long, but items on loan will have their due dates extended until the end of April. Library chutes will remain open and library items can be renewed online or by calling 6205 9000.
Library members can continue to access eBooks, eAudio, digital magazines, Story Box Library and other eResources on the Libraries ACT website.
In addition to these closures, the home library service will be postponed until further notice.
Access to services such as computers, printers and photocopiers can be arranged by calling 6205 9000. Access will only be available at the Woden, Dickson and Gungahlin branches by pre-arranged bookings.
