Library Closure

Mar 23, 2020

Library Closure

Dear Friends of the Library, During these challenging times, everyone here at the Library is thinking of our community and sharing your concern about the rapidly changing COVID-19 situation. Based on the direction from the Victorian government to prohibit the operation of non-essential businesses in order to combat the spread of the virus, we have made the difficult decision to close the library until further notice, and to cancel or postpone upcoming Library programs for the moment. We’re sad to close our doors but feel this is the best way to support the health, wellbeing and safety of our visitors, staff and volunteers, as well as the broader community. While we are closed, your current loans will not become overdue and any current reservations will be held for you until such time as we reopen. Items can still be reserved and requested while we are closed. Library members are welcome to borrow e-books. Click on the link for instructions: https://ljla.org.au/how-to-borrow-ebooks/. Email us on info@ljla.org.au to get a barcode and organise a password if you do not already have one. Information about plans to reopen or any other changes that arise will be published on our website, in our e-newsletters and on our Facebook page. If you would like to keep in touch please email us at info@ljla.org.au   Dr Rolene Lamm                            Lauren Joffe LJLA Chair                                       Library...
