‘Burgh library’s temporary closure

WOLLONGONG City Council will close the Helensburgh Library from September 8 until September 12 to replace the library’s ageing service desk.

Manager Library and Community Services Jenny Thompson said the closure might be inconvenient but it enables the library to provide better technology at the library desk as well as ensure the desk meets current Workplace Health and Safety requirements.

“If you need a library over this weekend, you can always visit the Thirroul District Library as this is the closest,” Ms Thompson said.

The works will be carried out over the September weekend to minimise disruption for library customers and will involve the shut-down of electricity for the library. The library book returns chute will remain open throughout this period. Customers are encouraged to visit other library branches to borrow or return library items.
The library will be closed from 1pm on Thursday September 8 until 2pm on Monday September 12.
For more information you can contact Council’s Customer Service on (02) 4227 7111 or visit Council’s website.
