Vital service for the community

Wellington Shire Council Mayor Garry Stephens encouraged people to use the service at a time when physically browsing the shelves is not possible. "During periods of lockdown, this has become a vital service for the community and it is much-loved by people across the shire."

"For many people, borrowing and reading a book is a way of taking care of their mental health, whether it is a way of learning or simply immersing themselves in a fictional story. Click and Collect is a way of still being able to access a physical book or other resource while doing so in a Covid-safe manner." Cr Stephens said.

Click and collect feasibility

The Click and Collect service is available at the library branches on their usual weekday opening days from 10am to 4pm, but not weekends.

Once the order is made, people can then collect the resources from the corresponding library. Online resources are available at all times, for anyone who has a current library card.

Library users can also call their local branch in Sale, Maffra, Heyfield, Rosedale, Yarram or Stratford, or email librarians at library@wellington.vic.gov.au.
