More of MidCoast Council libraries, visitor information centres and tip shops run and operated by volunteers began to re-open from Monday (June 29).

The openings follow a further lifting of COVID-19 restrictions across the country.

"We've really enjoyed being able to welcome the community back into our spaces over the last month, and are really pleased to be able to welcome our valuable volunteers back over the coming weeks," MidCoast Council liveable communities director, Paul De Szell said.

While the majority of libraries opened at the start of June, branches run by volunteers remained closed.

But from next Monday, July 6, Nabiac and Old Bar libraries will open their doors to the community.

Visitor information centres in Forster and Gloucester reopened at the beginning of June, while this Friday, July 3 will mark Taree's reopening, albeit with reduced hours, 9am to noon, Monday to Saturday.

Taree and Gloucester tip shops will open their doors this Wednesday.

We've really enjoyed being able to welcome the community back into our spaces over the last month.
