COVID-19 – Public Library Services

Changes to Library Opening Hours From 1 June 2020

Tenterfield Shire Council is continuing to review health advice regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and has put in place changes to meet guidelines for public safety. These guidelines have been implemented to ensure Council staff are available to meet the needs of the community throughout the crisis, with community and employee safety front of mind.

Tenterfield Library will be opened for 2 x 2 hour sessions per day for members to renew/exchange books or access the public computers.  This allows staff to clean equipment, etc to ensure the safety of all.

Times are 10.00 am to 12 noon and 2.00 pm to 4.00 pm – Monday to Friday and 9.30am to 11.30am on Saturday.  It is essential that you contact Library staff on 6736 6060 or email  to book computer time.  High risk residents wishing to use the Library can do so between 9.00 am – 10.00 am, Monday to Friday by appointment only.
