The State Library of South Australia would like to inform all customers that in line with both the Commonwealth, State Government’s and World Health Organisation’s advice on COVID-19, preparedness planning is well underway to ensure State Library’s actions are in the best health interests of both our staff and our customers.

As visitors would have noticed the State Library has already implemented hand sanitisation stations at key points within the premises and asks people to use these upon entry and exit of the buildings.

We have also directed extra cleaning throughout the buildings.

Please do not enter the State Library if you are unwell. We have asked both library staff and security to be vigilant around people’s health.

It is encouraged that there is no physical contact between staff or customers when greeting friends and colleagues. We all have a responsibility in slowing the transmission of this virus.

Whilst places of public gathering are beginning to be discouraged the State Library is fortunate in having a comprehensive online facility and we do encourage library customers to take advantage of this during this challenging time.

The State Library will continue to monitor state and national activity, taking advice from relevant government agencies so that we may carry out the most appropriate action for the welfare of all staff and visitors.

This website will publish any updates as needed.
