Although Library buildings are closed due to COVID-19 restrictions, staff are still available to help, and the following services remain in place; phone or email Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm; all return chutes are open 24/7; all loans have been extended with no overdue fines being issued; eResources available 24/7; online storytelling and craft can be accessed from our Facebook page; and new members can join online. For those running out of reading material, and if eBooks really aren't your thing, you can also request a book bundle. Staff will compile a stack of books, DVDs or magazines based on your entertainment preferences and you can either collect the items from the contact-less pick-up point at Mudgee Library, or receive a contact-less home delivery in town areas. You might like a pile of talking books, some comedy DVDs, or perhaps a selection from the Premier's Reading Challenge list, whatever your choice.
