With the current status of COVID-19, our greatest priority at this time is the health and safety of all our staff and you, our valued community. Therefore, in line with Australian and Queensland Government public health recommendations North Burnett Regional Council ceased the below library services and closed to the public at 4.30pm Wednesday, 25 March 2020 until further notice:
- Borrowing physical resources e.g. Books, DVD’s, magazines and audiobooks.
- One-on-One Tech Help Support (in person).
- Library events and programming including Storytime.
- Using the Library facilities including bathrooms, reading areas, public access computers tables, chairs and couches.
All current loans will automatically be extended until at least 30 June 2020 and can be returned when our libraries re-open. If you would prefer to return your items, all of our branch locations have a 24/7 after-hours returns chute. You can visit qld.auroracloud.com.au/montage/ to check your current loans online.
