Quarantining and Health Safety During COVID-19

All returned items will be quarantined for 72 hours prior to being replaced into the collection.

However, whilst we are working hard to put health safeguards in place, you should evaluate your individual health situation before visiting our spaces and/or borrowing items from the public collection.

Please observe signage and appropriate social distancing during your visit.

Please consider others and do not enter our premises if you are feeling unwell and/or have flu or cold-like symptoms.

Contact Tracing Visitor Record

As a condition of entry to a Library branch, you will be required to provide your name and contact details. This is for contact tracing purposes only. This information will be stored for 28 days after which time it will be destroyed.

‘Keeping it Short and Sweet’

Blue Mountains Library is pleased to announce that from 20 July Springwood, Blaxland and Katoomba libraries will be open as above.

However, as numbers in branches are limited, we’re asking that your visits are ‘short and sweet’ so we can help everyone out!

Additionally, we need to let you know that, due to social distancing, our staff may not be able to be as ‘hands-on’ as normal with troubleshooting for PCs, Copying and Printing. These services will be predominantly DIY and, if you feel that you may need assistance, you can request cheat sheets from the Librarians or we recommend bringing a knowledgeable friend!

The following services will be available:-

Browsing and Borrowing

You can now enter a branch and make your own selections as normal. Normal borrowing and holds periods apply. See our loans information for details.

Book bins are open for returns at all branches that remain closed.

Springwood Library: no over-the-counter returns, all returns via book bins.

Blaxland Library: no over-the-counter returns, all returns via book bins.

Katoomba Library: no over-the-counter returns, please use trolleys provided in branch.

WiFi

Printing Services

Printing from Public PCs and Wireless printing is available as usual.

Copying and Scanning
