COVID-19 requirements

Queensland Health requires that everyone entering a library, regardless of age, provides their contact details in case contact tracing is needed. Please bring your library card with you for entry to the library (and for borrowing) while COVID-19 contact tracing requirements are in place. If you're feeling unwell, please don't visit our libraries. 

While in our libraries, please follow directional signage, maintain good hand and respiratory hygiene and practice physical distancing. Capacity limits are in place, with all Queensland public libraries bound by the one person per 2 square metres rule. During COVID-19 restrictions, we are unable to provide some services. Please check with your local library for more details. We thank you for your understanding and assure you that Gold Coast Libraries remains committed to the health and wellbeing of our customers, staff and the wider community.
