NORTHERN Grampians libraries in both Stawell and St Arnaud are now reopened, after covid restrictions ease in Victoria.
Programs and acitivies have started to gradually return, with density limits within the facility.
At Stawell, the community meeting room is available any day except for Wednesdays from 1.30pm to 4.30pm with a maximum capacity of five people.
There is also a courtyard area for community use as well as an open area at the back of the library.
Community members are encouraged to call ahead to library staff to book a meeting room or other library service or facility to ensure all density and patron limit requirements are adhered to.
For young book lovers, Storytime is back at 10.30am on Thursdays and Fridays.
The next storytime theme is part of the Northern Grampians Shire Council 16 days of Activism Against GenderBased Violence program and the story and craft will be based around respect and kindness.
Booking in advance is required as numbers are limited to 20 including children and parents.
Masks are mandatory in the library at this time in line with State Government regulations and requirements.
The Call, Click and Collect program implemented at both library branches during the COVID lockdown has been very popular and is still available for vulnerable groups who are unable to attend in person at the libraries.
The Stawell Library is open Tuesdays to Fridays from 10am to 5.30pm, Saturdays from 10am to 12pm and Sundays from 2pm to 5pm.
