Thames-Coromandel District Libraries are open during our usual hours at COVID-19 Alert Level 2. At COVID-19 Alert Level 2, you legally must wear a face covering when visiting public facilities such as libraries, and must keep a two metre distance from other people, except for friends and family. We will be taking steps in our buildings, such as removing some furniture or limiting the number of patrons, to ensure everyone has fair and safe access to our services. You'll also be asked to record your visit using the NZ COVID Tracer app or on paper. All items which were due back between 19th August and 15th September are now due back on Wednesday 15th September. We will not be charging overdue fees for this period. If you have an interloan item, please feel free to get in touch with our interloans team at Thames Library - we are working with our partner libraries nationwide to reset the due dates for interloans. All of our regular events are cancelled during Level 2 - that includes Toddler Time, after-school clubs, crochet and knitting groups, Need a Nerd, and our monthly events like genealogy meet-ups and Free Film Friday. Our meeting rooms will not be available to book during Level 2. Our Housebound Service is back in action and open to new members - if you are already a Housebound Service patron, our staff will contact you about changes to this service at Level 2. If you're interested in receiving this service, particularly during this pandemic, please call Thames Library. We'll share any new information about our services on Facebook, here on our website's COVID-19 page, and in our e-newsletter as the COVID-19 situation changes. Thank you for your patience as we all adjust to this new way of working.
