Coronavirus update

Toowoomba Region Libraries opening hours have been extended.

Meeting rooms at Oakey, Clifton and Yarraman libraries are available to the public under COVID-19 safety requirements. More information on the easing of COVID-19 restrictions at Toowoomba Region libraries.

Hygiene practices will be in place at all branches to ensure the health and safety of customers and staff.

Customers are encouraged to continue using the Reserve and Collect service that enables reserving of books, magazines and DVDs, through the library's online catalogue or the MyTRLibrary app. As reserved items become available for collection, customers will be alerted by their chosen notification method of email, phoned message, or letter. Customers are also reminded that the Library’s e-Resources are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Library programs returning soon 

In February 2021 we surveyed residents to get their thoughts on our libraries and identify ways to improve the service. Survey results highlighted strong support for resuming key services suspended due to COVID-19. 

In response to this feedback, the following programs will resume on a temporary basis:

  • First 5 Forever Storytime program resumes Monday 17 May 2021 - the program helps build literacy foundations for children aged up to five
  • Tech Savvy Seniors Queensland program resumes Tuesday 1 June 2021 - provides older people with the opportunity to develop the skills and confidence to use technology
  • Home Library Service resumes for existing Home Library Service members in May 2021 - provides reading materials and resources to residents who are unable to visit our libraries in person
  • The Great Book Swap resumes May 2021 - delivers large print items to nursing homes and care facilities in Toowoomba.

More information about these programs including dates, times and locations is coming soon. 

Council will make a decision on the future shape and priorities of our library services later this year.

To find out more about the survey and future opportunities to have your say on our library service, please visit our Your Say website.
