Library to reopen

02 Jun 2020

The Library at the Dock at Victoria Harbour will reopen on Tuesday, June 9, the City of Melbourne has confirmed.

The council announced on June 1 that was managing the staged re-opening of its libraries, recreation centres and community sporting fields as COVID-19 restrictions were eased across the state.

Lord Mayor Sally Capp said select council facilities would begin to reopen with strict capacity and physical distancing rules.

“We know people have been missing community facilities such as libraries and pools but safety is our first priority so will take a staged approach to re-opening,” the Lord Mayor said.

“Pedestrian numbers within the city have increased by more than 20 per cent in the past week compared to three weeks ago.

“However, we cannot rush back to the way things were. It’s vital we work together, follow physical distancing guidelines and maintain good hygiene practices to help keep our community safe.”

Along with Library at the Dock, the City of Melbourne will re-open City Library, Kathleen Syme Library, North Melbourne Library, Southbank Library and East Melbourne Library from June 9.

Chair of the Knowledge City portfolio Cr Dr Jackie Watts said that libraries were reopening with restricted patron numbers and reduced hours.

“The safety of our staff and the community is vital as we re-open our much-loved libraries,” Cr Watts said.

“Access to our libraries will be prioritised for people who are unable to access the internet at home, those facing social isolation and people experiencing economic hardship.”

“For people unable to return to our branches, I certainly encourage them to continue using our digital library services."
