We are pleased to announce that we are open again, operating within the Government’s Phase 2 restrictions.

Broome Public Library will be operating within the requirements of our COVIDsafe plan, for the safety of staff and the public. 

A maximum of 20 members of the public are allowed in the library at a time, and so to avoid disappointment, we recommend that you call the library on 9191 3477 to book a 30-minute time slot. 

Please be prepared to provide your name and contact details, for the purposes of Health Department contact tracing, should it be required.

During Phase 2 restrictions, the library will be open between 10am and 5pm, Monday to Friday.

In addition to the return of most of our classic library services, some of the Phase 1 services will continue.
