To help protect the community, Council libraries have closed indefinitely in line with the Federal Government’s requirements to help slow the spread of COVID-19.

While libraries are closed….

  • You do not need to return your items – all current loans will be automatically extended until 30 June 2020 as we’d like you to prioritise your health over the return of your library items
  • You can watch Storytime from home – Keep an eye on Council’s Facebook page to catch our staff reading some of their favourite picture books to you at home.
  • Online membership – join online and while the library service is closed you can still access all our online resources immediately
  • And don’t forget you can still access items online – Using your library card or the temporary online identification number you have free access to download
    • eBooks
    • eAudiobooks
    • eMagazines
    • stream movies
    • or stay motivated by completing an online tutorial

We’re here to help!

Staff will be available to assist customers who need help connecting to our eResources from 8:30am – 5pm Monday to Friday

There are four libraries located within the Mareeba Shire, all providing an extensive variety of materials to borrow including books, videos, DVDs, music CDs, magazines, audio books, newspapers and games. Internet and computer access, photocopying and children’s activities are also available. As the four libraries are all part of the one service, you can pick up and drop off resources at all four libraries interchangeably.
