YOUR favourite library resources are now available to click and collect in Esk, Lowood and Kilcoy.

Somerset Libraries launched the contactless service this week, giving members access to thousands of items during the COVID-19 closures.

Somerset Mayor Graeme Lehmann said council continued to innovate during unpredictable and unprecedented times.

“Our libraries are adapting by presenting Storytime @ Home and craft and STEAM activities via Facebook – click and collect is the next step in meeting the needs and expectations of our community,” Cr Lehmann said.

“Although Somerset Libraries already offers extensive online resources, there has been a gap for those who do not have a suitable device for accessing them.

“The simple three-step process means members can collect books from a designated area external to the libraries – unfortunately they won’t be able to browse or have face to face contact with staff, but this is the next best thing.

“Our libraries are vital services for our communities, assisting with education, relaxation and connection.”

To reserve your click and collect items visit catalogue.somerset.qld.gov.au/Montage/ and library staff will contact you with pick up information. Each order can include up to 30 items.
