COVID-19 Update

No Fines while the library is closed for COVID-19

No Fines

We want to assure all our members that during these challenging and uncertain times, we will extend the due date on your library loans until we are able to re-open. This means no overdue fines and no need to renew.

If you have items on hold, we will extend the pick-up period so that they will still be waiting for you when we re-open.

Book return chutes at our Caringbah, Cronulla, Engadine, Menai and Miranda Libraries have been closed until further notice, in line with required restrictions. Sutherland Library's external return chute remains OPEN 9am-5pm, Monday to Friday.

Remember, you will accrue no overdue fines while we are closed. You can hold onto your items until we are able to re-open.
