Please Wear a Mask at your Library

Tam and Alex abide by the NSW Health Guidelines

We are ready to welcome you to our Libraries at Blayney, Canowindra, Cowra, Forbes, Manildra, Molong and Orange –  but we do ask you to please be mindful of current NSW Health Regulations:

* stay home if unwell

* check in using QR Codes or our iPads

* use hand sanitiser provided

* social distance 1.5 metres

* wear a mask (if over 12 years).

Please note school holiday activities at Orange City Library will be going ahead ~ except for The Beanies performance ~ we are allowing more space for attendees to our Lego Club, Science in the Kitchen and Sew Much Fun.

The recently started Storytime program at Canowindra Library will  continue as planned.

In regards to our Orange Readers and Writers Festival we will continue to monitor the NSW Health Regulations and keep you informed.

Thank you for abiding by the new guidelines. It is much appreciated by all the library team and library members.
