Council's library outreach services are changing.
From Tuesday 9 July 2019, Council will deliver reserved library items to each former mobile library location. This is due to a combination of reasons leading to the cessation of the mobile library trailer.
To order items for delivery - go to the library catalogue https://scenicrim.spydus.com and place a reservation. When asked for a pick-up location, specify the township - Kalbar, Harrisville, Kooralbyn, Beechmont, Tamborine Village, Peak Crossing, Rathdowney or Hillview. Any items that have been reserved and are available for loan will be delivered and made available to be picked up.
A Scenic Rim Regional Council library card must be presented when collecting items. Any items not collected will be left at the closest Council Library - Canungra, Tamborine Mountain, Boonah or Beaudesert. They will be held for 10 days before being returned to the collection or made available for someone else to borrow.
While delivering reservations and accepting any returns, Council officers will also be offering assistance with digital technology and devices as well as offering free Wi-Fi during the visit. Library members are welcome to bring a mobile phone, laptop or tablet to gain digital assistance.
The delivery of school holiday activities and other programs will continue, they will just not be in the mobile library trailer.
While this interim library outreach service is provided, Council welcomes any feedback from residents of affected areas to develop a service and program which best suits each township. An online survey is available here in order to shape direction of the new-look library outreach service.
For further information or assistance please phone Beaudesert library on 5540 5142.
