COVID-19 – Public Library Services

Tenterfield Shire Council is continuing to review health advice regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and has put in place changes to meet guidelines for public safety. These guidelines have been implemented to ensure Council staff are available to meet the needs of the community throughout the crisis, with community and employee safety front of mind.

From Monday, 14 December 2020, Opening Times will be 10.00 am to 5:00 pm – Monday to Friday.  It is essential that you contact Library staff on 6736 6060 or email to book computer time.  High risk residents wishing to use the Library can do so between 9.00 am – 10.00 am, Monday to Friday by appointment only.
