Check in with a QR code!
Dropping in to ask our customer service team a question? Visiting a library or gym? Or checking out an exhibition at a Council-run gallery?
Council is committed to being COVID-safe. This includes asking our visitors to record their contact details in case NSW Health needs to conduct contact tracing after someone who later tests positive to COVID has also attended the venue.
To make it easier for you to record your details, we’re posting signs with QR codes at the entrance to all our facilities. Each QR code is specific to a facility and visitors can use their phone’s QR scanner to scan and record their details. The data we gather will be kept for 28 days and only used if required by NSW Health.
Of course, if you don’t have a phone or QR scanner, you’ll still be able to provide your contact details in another way. Our friendly staff will assist if you have any difficulties checking in.
More time to browse and borrow
An exciting update about our libraries! From this Saturday, our Lake Haven, Tuggerah and Woy Woy branches join the Erina branch in re-opening on Saturdays from 9.30am to 12.30pm.
Our libraries have also been able to remove some of the restrictions which applied when they re-opened after the COVID closures:
- there is no longer a time limit for customers in branch, but site capacities will remain
- a reduced number of internet PCs are available for public use as per ‘normal practice’
We are still asking that all book returns are made via the external chutes at all branches, as our internal chutes remain closed.
We'd like to thank our community members for their understanding and patience as we work to create a safe and enjoyable experience for all.
