Welcome back to Joondalup Library

Categories:

Joondalup Library has re-opened after an eight-week closure with some exciting changes, including a bright new mural in the children’s section, painted by visual artist and children’s author, Kyle Hughes Odgers.

Kyle was commissioned to create an artwork under the theme Make The City Your Playground. The 42-square-metre mural encourages playful imaginings, focussing on nature and growth.

As part of a staged re-opening of local libraries, Joondalup Library will open to allow a maximum of 20 customers in the building at one time as per State Government direction. The opening hours are 9.00am – 5.00pm. from Monday to Friday and visits are restricted to 30 minutes. 

Customers can browse and borrow books, DVDs, audiobooks, CDs and magazines as well as access public computers and printing facilities. Consistent with new requirements for precautionary tracing, visitors will be asked to provide their contact details to staff upon entry.

During closure, children’s and adult programs and events moved to an online format. Old favourites Toddler Time and Discovery Sessions are now available anytime to view at home.

Popular additions include Chop Chop Stories, Lego Challenge and Meet The Author sessions via as Chapter One are now available. Online programming will continue while restrictions remain in place.

Books on Wheels continues to service the City’s most vulnerable community members during this time.

The child immunisation health clinic will continue as normal at Joondalup Library. The City is unable to take bookings for its library meeting rooms.

At this stage, Duncraig, Whitford and Woodvale Libraries will remain closed but continue to offer a low contact Click and Collect Service.

The after-hours chutes at all branches will remain open and all items currently on loan have had the due date extended until Tuesday 30 June 2020.

As restrictions ease, Joondalup Libraries invites customers to join their community project, Share the Love for Libraries by creating origami hearts and return them with your books.

These will become a communal installation in each library branch. The origami hearts, like leaves, symbolise new growth and renewal. See the City website for information.
