Lismore Library to close temporarily for refurbishment

Lismore Library to close temporarily for refurbishment

The popular, though ageing, Lismore Library is to get a much-needed refurbishment.

Works will include new shelving, furnishings and carpet.

While this is taking place, the library will be closed from Monday, 18 November to Friday, 29 November 2019.

If you attend any of the library’s programs do not despair. During the closure all the regular activities such as Book Clubs, Young Writers Group, Storytime, Baby Bounce & Toddler Time will be running at the normal times in the ground floor meeting room. The much anticipated author event with Annie Seaton will still go ahead.

To attend a program or event at the library, you will be able to enter and leave the building through the automatic doors on the Magellan Street side. There will be no access to the library beyond the ground floor.

In the lead up to this closure, patrons are welcome to borrow more than the regular 20 items to ensure they have plenty of wonderful library resources to see them through this period.

If you want to borrow items during the closure, the Goonellabah Library will be open for extended hours with extra staff to cover the expected demand. Goonellabah Library will be open during this period from 9.30am to 5pm Monday to Friday; 9am to 1pm Saturday and 1pm to 4pm on Sunday. You will find Goonellabah Library at 27 Oliver Avenue, Goonellabah.

There are two public PCs available at Goonellabah Library and three public PCs available at the Genealogy Library at 6 Centenary Drive, Goonellabah. If you have need of these during the closure, please book ahead.

The Lismore Library will be reopening on Saturday 30 November 2019.

If you have any questions, or wish to check whether an activity is happening please phone the Lismore Library on 02 6621 2464, or the Goonellabah Library on 02 6625 1235.
