Gold Coast Libraries have made the decision to suspend all public library programs, events and activities until further notice as a precautionary response to the Novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

Our 'Start me up - Business skills' workshops and events will resume again later in the year, and we are working to reschedule the events that will not be going ahead over the next couple of months.
