City Libraries Continue Contact during COVID

26 May 2020 5:00 PM

The City of Kalamunda’s libraries have rolled out a modified approach to its services including self-serve printing, photocopying and scanning and bookings for library computers.

City Mayor Margaret Thomas said library staff were continuing to provide a full range of online services to members and visitors, while continuing a staged approach to offering modified physical services.

“COVID-19 has had a significant impact on our library communities,” Cr Thomas said. “With this in mind, we're working hard to make sure the services we provide align with public health guidelines and keep everyone safe.”

 Currently, both High Wycombe and Kalamunda libraries are open weekdays from 10am to 4pm, with bookings required. Hand sanitisation and social distancing are a requirement for entry. Computers can be booked for up to one hour and use of library computers and multi-purpose copiers is on a self-serve basis only, meaning there is limited staff assistance available. Library visitors must bring their own pens, notepaper and earphones if required.

“Customers can also continue to request their books from all four of our libraries, with click and collect available and the Librarians offering an impeccable service.”

At this time, payment by card is preferred. If paying by cash, please bring the correct amount as no change will be given.

To book a computer please phone or book online, to use the multi-purpose copier please phone to confirm booking time.

Upon arrival, knock on the library front door and a staff member will confirm entry.
