Opening hours for Armidale Regional Libraries will be changing from this Monday, with a partial easing of COVID-19 restrictions.
Both the Armidale and Guyra libraries will be open from 10.30am to 4.30pm on weekdays and will no longer close during the middle of the day.
In addition, a one-hour time limit for visits to the libraries will be removed from Monday.
On Saturdays, Guyra Library will continue to open from 9.30am to 11.30am and Armidale Library will open from 10am to 1pm.
The extended hours come as the libraries prepare for school holiday activities, starting on Monday 28 September.
Activities at both libraries will feature a Feathers, Fur and Scales animals live streaming event on Thursday 8 October. The online event will bring children face-to-face with a sugar glider, barn owl, lizards, pythons and a crocodile.
Both libraries will also host a UNE Science discovery workshop inviting children to ‘Think Like a Rock’.
Visit the libraries page on Council’s website for further information.
Bookings are required for all sessions and registrations are now open.
