 Stay safe and healthy

Your safety and the safety of our staff is paramount.  That's why our buildings are open with limitations. 

By using our Libraries, you agree to:

  • Register your attendance each day by scanning the QR code using the Service NSW app at Lismore and Coffs Harbour campuses and the Check In Qld app at the Gold Coast Campus
  • Stay home if you are feeling unwell, waiting on test results for COVID-19, or you have been asked to self-isolate
  • Follow all directions in signage or issued by staff, including social distancing, wearing masks, hand and surface hygiene.
  • Maintain 1.5m distance from others and do not move furniture or equipment.

We thank you for your cooperation and understanding during this time.

Please continue to ask us online if you need assistance.
