Hard work behind the scenes at the Parkes Shire Library has resulted in the establishment of a housebound service for members not able to access the library’s online collection.
“This will be a COVID-safe contactless drop-off of library materials – books, audio books and DVDs – to your home,” said Manager Cultural, Education & Library Ser-vices Kerryn Jones.
The service started in Parkes from 2nd September and will be rolled out in Peak Hill, Trundle and Tullamore shortly. “If you are interested in having library materials delivered to your home, please give the library staff a call, so we can put you on our delivery list,” said Kerryn. “You can select your items from our web catalogue at https://parkes.libero.com.au/ or you can give us a call and let us know what books you would like.”
Members can also access an extensive online collection of eBooks, eAudiobooks, movies, or the latest eMagazines at My Online Library on Council’s website. Go to the Parkes Shire Libraries Facebook page to watch the instructional video or give the team a call on 6861 2309 to talk you through the process.
Story Time and Rhymetime are continuing in an online format on the Parkes Shire Libraries Facebook page delivered by the library staff. Like and follow the Facebook page to stay up to date with the videos.
