All branches of Cassowary Coast Libraries will be closing over the Christmas period, from 3pm Friday 21 December and will re-open at normal times on Wednesday 2019.
Our normal 3 week loan period has been extended*, so you don't have to worry about returning your library items until the new year. And to make sure you have plenty of reading material while the libraries are closed, between the 10th and 21st December we are increasing the loan limit to 30 items!
Wishing everyone a happy and safe festive season.
*extended loan period does not include inter-library loans.
