Normal hours resume, Saturdays back, with measures in place
Libraries are now back to their usual operating hours, including Saturday mornings. All library services are available, with some limits in place - no children's programming or events available at this time. All floors of Mudgee Library are open to the public, including meeting rooms for hire with the one person per four square metres applying. Half-hour bookings of public PCs are available with physical distancing in place. While we also welcome people into the Library to read and study, we recommend visits are no longer than two hours at this time. We hope to see you back in the Library soon.

Gulgong Youth Craft-ernoons
Youth Craft-ernoons are held at Gulgong Library on the third Tuesday of the month, 3.45-4.45pm. New and funky, or old school and traditional; each session will bring something different, and something for everyone. All materials supplied. Sessions presented by Council Youth Services, in partnership with the Library and funded by the NSW Government. Bookings essential, head on over to mwrcyouth.eventbrite.com.
Stacks of anime, manga, games
Mid-Western Regional Youth Council have recently - and generously - donated an enormous haul of new anime DVDs, manga, and more than two times the height of the Youth Mayor worth of tabletop games to the Library. Available to borrow and play soon, be sure to invest some serious time in these so you will be ready to roll once Level Up and Manga and Anime Squad start back up.
Happy reading, until the next chapter...
