Welcome back to the library

Monday, June 29, 2020

Bayside libraries are now open for book browsing and collections via appointment only. Our doors will be open to twenty people at a time at Brighton and Beaumaris Libraries and eight people at Hampton Library due to physical distancing requirements.

Visitors need to book in for a 30 minute time slot between 10am-6pm Monday to Friday and 10am-1pm Saturday. 

You can visit to collect reservation at any time without a booking, and return chutes are also open.

Shared spaces like the PC areas and study spaces are not yet available.
