A further easing of restrictions and conditions will take place at the Bowral Central Library from the 6 October 2020

The Health and wellbeing of our staff and community remains our number one priority. That means our current cleaning schedule will remain unchanged and we’ll also continue to ask guests to use the hand sanitisers provided.

A mandatory register for contact tracing purposes will be available at the Library’s customers service desks with a QR code available for those who wish to leave their details electronically.

All book returns can be made via either the library’s internal or external return chutes. Books returned will still be isolated for a minimum of 24 hours before being returned into the Library collections.
