MidCoast Council Libraries

Are you missing that regular visit to the library in the search of a good read?

The good news is despite the doors of MidCoast Council Libraries being closed you can still borrow books.

The popular click and collect initiative, introduced by the libraries team last year, is continuing to enable library members to fulfill their passion for reading.

To access the click and collect service, library members simply complete an online form with reading/viewing preferences, staff will make selections and borrowers will be notified when their order is ready for collection.

"Click and collect allows library members to enjoy the collection in a more accessible and convenient way and it's completely free," libraries manager, Chris Jones said.

"We have online click and collect forms for adults, kids, teens and HSC students, so everyone can access this fabulous service," he said.

Reading is a great activity for everyone to help get through this time and we're more than happy to help where we can

"We're even encouraging our book clubs to use this service."

For library members who don't have access to the internet, phone the library and staff can help through the process.

"We're asking our community to use these options rather than coming down to our libraries and hoping to catch staff."

Once orders are ready, staff will contact the member and organise a contactless pick-up at the library location of their choice.

"Reading is a great activity for everyone to help get through this time and we're more than happy to help where we can," Mr Jones said.
