Latest Update regarding Coronavirus and the library service

Post last updated: Monday 23 March 2020 at 5:00 p.m.

Light Regional Public Library Service is remaining open to the public until such time as we can no longer safely operate. Safety of our staff and all visitors to the library is paramount.

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

  • Suspended all face-to-face library programs, events and outreach services
  • Only accepting EFTPOS or over the phone payments at all Council customer service facilities
  • Closed the Greenock Library
  • Family history resources are unavailable to the public
  • Community Rooms at Freeling and Kapunda Library Branches are closed to the public

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

We are working on ways we can help people 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 items – you will not be penalised! 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 movies and much more
  • the LIbraries SA App is also available 24/7 and all accessible at your fingertips. Download it now for iOS or Android.
  • Visitor information can be obtained from – available 24/7

Our response to the outbreak of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) is being guided by the latest advice from Commonwealth and State authorities (SA Health and Australian Government – Department of Health).
