Libraries deliver lockdown entertainment

Libraries across the Coast have re-activated their popular Click and Deliver book service for all library members, delivering books to doorsteps free of charge.

Members can reserve up to 10 items through the library online catalogue.

All people need to do is select their closest branch and staff will be in contact before items are delivered to confirm the address for delivery.

Staff are taking extra COVID precautions by using hand sanitiser and gloves before handling items when making deliveries.

This service means that Council can continue to support the community’s learning and recreational needs with contactless connection to maintain community safety and promote mental health and well-being.

Since the service started on July 15, Council has already made 1,411 deliveries of 5,137 items.

Anyone can join the library online and begin accessing electronic resources immediately, as well as reserving items for delivery, which usually takes a week.

In addition to the Click and Deliver service, Council libraries offer a range of online programs and events.

To help keep children entertained and engaged, there is an online story time, scratch coding, Parker the Platypus books and colouring sheets for families to download.

For National Science Week, running until August 22, there are special online story time events and some experiments that children can easily do at home.

For adults interested in family history, there are two information sessions on August 24 and 25.

For adults interested in Dungeons and Dragons, the libraries will be hosting online gaming sessions.

Participating library branches on the Peninsula include Umina Beach and Woy Woy.

All library event details can be found on Council’s website.
