Click and Collect kicks off at Sunshine Coast Council Libraries

Published:

If you’re running a bit low on reading material Sunshine Coast Council Libraries are here to help with the launch of their new Click and Collect service for library card holders.

Community Portfolio Councillor David Law said the team had been planning this service for some time, and thanks to the recent easement of restrictions surrounding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, council was pleased to provide a click and collect option to our members.

So, how does it work?

“It’s really easy to access the service. Library card holders just need to visit the website library.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au and fill out the Click and Collect form,” Cr Law said.

“If you don’t have internet access at home, call our libraries directly on 5475 8989.

“Due to availability and the anticipated demand, you won’t be able to select specific titles. Instead you can tell our librarians the genre you’re most interested in, and they’ll pick a selection of up to 10 books for you to take home and enjoy. It’s a lucky dip, for books!

“And, if you’ve got any existing reservations, these will also be included in your book pack.

“When your order is ready for collection the library team will contact you directly via phone or email to arrange a suitable collection time at your local library – and it’s totally free.

“Library members can rest assured that Sunshine Coast Libraries are following health recommendations regarding quarantining library items upon their return.

“Once an item is received it will go into quarantine for four days before becoming available on the library shelf once again.

“This process reduces the risk for both our library staff and customers, whilst providing a great service to help our library users access this much loved service.

“Customers are also advised that return chutes are open at all libraries. However, please make sure to bring your library card along to open the chute.

“All existing loans have been extended until August 3, so members don’t need to worry about any overdue notices during this time.”
