IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YANKALILLA LIBRARY
Last updated 27 March 2020.
In the interest of slowing down the spread of COVID-19 the Yankalilla Library will be closed until further notice.
Due to the Police Commissioner’s direction, changes have been made to how customers can access library collections. Yankalilla Library's ‘Click and Collect’ service has ceased. The following measures are now in place:
> Customers will not be able to place holds using the online catalogue (this is a state-wide directive – holds cannot be placed online for any library).
> Customers will not be able to place holds by calling or emailing Yankalilla Library.
> No holds notifications will be sent during this period.
> Outstanding holds will not expire and will be available to collect when the library reopens.
These measures will be in place until further notice.
While we’re disappointed that our Click and Collect Service cannot continue, the health and safety of our community is our top priority. We have a great range of digital resources that can be accessed from home, including e-books, e-audio, e-magazines, and other learning materials. Take a look here: www.libraries.sa.gov.au/digital
Our Home Library Service will continue at this stage with social distancing measures in place.
Temporary Change in Borrowing Policies
We understand that this is a challenging time and to help, public libraries in South Australia have made some changes to borrowing policies.
>As of 19/03/2020 all items will be given a 6-week loan period.
>Any items due from 26/02/2020 will be automatically extended for 6 weeks.
>Overdue and billing notices have been stopped until at least the end of April.
>Deliveries of requested items are still happening at this stage, and you are still able to pick them up at the library.
Please remember that the Digital Library is always open.
