Book chats and clubs at Bayside libraries

All Library programs and events cancelled

In the interest of our community’s health and safety we have made the decision to cancel scheduled Library programming and events.

The health and safety of our community is our top priority and we do not want to put anyone at risk.

We are closely monitoring the ever-evolving Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and actively taking steps to mitigate the impact and spread of COVID-19 based on the advice of the department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and Australia’s Chief Medical Officer.

As the COVID-19 situation continues to unfold we will re-assess the next steps. At this time we cannot advise of when Library programming will resume.

Thank you for your understanding.

Find the most up to date information on COVID-19 at the DHHS.

Keep up-to-date with what is happening at Bayside Libraries by signing up for our e-newsletter.

Our book clubs are fully subscribed for 2020. You can join the wait list. Join in a Book Chat any time.
