STAFF shortages due to covid has closed the Erindale and Civic libraries from Sunday (January 16) until January 31, inclusive.
“COVID-19 is currently impacting our workforce with a large proportion of staff needing to do the right thing and follow isolation requirements. To try and maintain continuity of service across Canberra’s library network, we will close these two branches for the next two weeks,” said Vanessa Little, of Libraries ACT.
“This is in addition to the current closure of the ACT Heritage Library on Mondays and Fridays.”
All other ACT library branches and online services will remain available for the Canberra community.
“Items can be returned through return chutes, at another branch or renewed online. Dickson library is the closest library to the city and Tuggeranong library also remains open for those who would normally visit Erindale,” Ms Little said.
