Gold Coast Libraries - Stage One of easing restrictions

All of our libraries continue to remain closed to the public. We know our members are eager to see us open our doors again, however it's simply not safe or practical for us to resume normal services as yet.

We are pleased to announce the first step in our staged approach to slowly reintroducing our services to the public.

From Saturday 16 May, Stage 1 will see us open the 24-hour external return chutes at Elanora, Helensvale and Southport libraries. Please note returns can only be made using the external return chutes at these three locations only. There is no need to return your items now as loans have been extended through until Friday 31 July.

We know you want to get back into libraries as soon as you can – and we're working on a plan to ensure we can do so in a safe and carefully managed way.

While our libraries remain closed, we are still here to help and you can contact us Monday to Friday from 8.30am to 5pm.

Follow us on Facebook and Instagram for the latest updates, as well as reading inspiration, virtual events, and for more about ways in which you can continue to connect with us from home!

Find out more about updates to our services in response to COVID-19.
