Closure of the Gingin & Lancelin Libraries

Published on Monday, 23 March 2020 at 1:00:00 PM

As of 4pm this afternoon, 23 March 2020, the Gingin and Lancelin Libraries will be closed until further notice.

This direction has come from the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries. This measure is being put in place to combat the spread of COVID-19 and the Shire of Gingin thanks the public in advance for their understanding.

A Drop Box is available at both libraries so you can still return your books and also drop off you entries for the 'Easter Colouring Competition' which closes on 3 April. There are also opportunities to access library resources online if you have a library card so please visit www.gingin.wa.gov.au/community/libraries/eresources.aspx for further information.

Further to this the Department has directed that:
"...as part of a nationally consistent approach, all cultural and art institutions in Western Australia will close in the interests of public safety in response to COVID-19. This includes art galleries, theatres, museums, and libraries across the State.

We understand that these institutions are important elements of our community and temporarily shutting them down will cause hardship for many. However, our best medical advice is that this is a necessary step to help reduce the spread of COVID-19."
