Handling of Research Material

As much as possible only staff will handle books, files, and other such material in our Research Centre. If an item is touched by a patron during research, staff will place it in a designated quarantine container where it will remain for the appropriate period until it is safe to be placed back in the library.

Duty of Care

For the safety of our patrons and staff, we reserve the right to refuse entry to anyone showing symptoms that could indicate Coronavirus and to anyone not in compliance with our hygiene and social-distance safety protocols.
