Changes to services by Light Regional Libraries and Kapunda Visitor Information Centre - 19 March 2020

After careful consideration of the risks presented by the COVID-19 virus, Light Regional Council has decided to make the following changes effective from Friday, 20th March 2020 until further notice.

Light Regional Council understands that the libraries and Kapunda Visitor Information Centre provide a vital community service, but our priority is the safety of people in our libraries.

After careful consideration of the risks presented by the COVID-19 virus, we have decided to make the following changes effective from Friday, 20th March 2020 until further notice:

  • Suspend all face-to-face library programs, events and outreach services
  • Accept EFTPOS or over the phone payments only at all Council customer service facilities.
  • Close the Greenock Library
  • Family history resources will be unavailable to the public
  • Community rooms at Freeling and Kapunda Libraries will be closed to the public
  • Suspend the Kapunda Visitor Information Centre face-to-face services (including enquiries, brochures, and souvenirs) and instead promote online and phone services
  • Close public access to the Kidman Exhibition and Taste of the Region Interpretive display.

Basic library services will continue at this stage, however as the situation evolves it is acknowledged that there may come a need for Council to close its libraries at short notice. Measures will be in place for modified service delivery to continue if this occurs.

We are working on ways that we can help people can still access our services, with additional online services coming soon, please remember:

  • We DON’T charge overdue fines and we offer renewals; hang onto your books you will not be penalised – promise! If you are feeling unwell, please do not come into the library.
  • HOLDS – We are working on a way to get holds to you. While we do this, we will extend the pickup dates for you. Holds that were to be picked up at Greenock will be changed to Kapunda.
  • “After hours” chutes are open 24/7 so you can drop your items whenever it suits you
  • The library website  is available 24/7, you can download books, stream music and much more
  • Libraries SA App is available 24/7 and all accessible at your fingertips, download it now on iOS or Android
  • Get your visitor information at https://lightsouthaustralia.com - available 24/7

We are working on innovative ways to support you (our wonderful community) over the coming weeks and months – we will keep you in the loop as things progress. You can keep up to date with Light Regional Library Service updates by visiting this website and accessing our social media channels.

We thank you for your understanding.
