Ballina Region for Refugees needs help

Can you help local community group Ballina Region for Refugees help newcomers in need of training?

Great news for those who love to read ‘old school’ style as local libraries are about to deliver the goods – to your library bag.

The new Click and Collect was launched today – library members can Click and Collect items from the Library’s collections.

Richmond Tweed Regional Library is delighted to be able to offer members access to the physical collections held in our branches through the service which is being offered while the library branches are closed to the public.

Library members can request books, DVDs, magazines and jigsaw puzzles through the library’s online catalogue and then arrange a time with staff to collect their items.

Regional Library Manager Jo Carmody said that libraries are vital services for our communities assisting with education, relaxation and connection to the community. ‘Although the library offers an extensive online collection of eBooks, eAudiobooks, eMagazines, online programs and more, there has been a gap for those who do not have access to the internet or a suitable device for accessing the online collections.’

Search the library catalogue online for items to reserve

Library members can search the library catalogue online for items to reserve. When they receive notification that their items are available for collection, they can phone their closest branch to arrange a time to collect items.

Members are only permitted one Click and Collect booking per month but can reserve and collect up to 20 items each time. You need to bring a library bag to put your items in.

‘Staff have been busy adapting services and programs to ensure we can still meet the needs and expectations of the community and the health and safety requirements of the current situation and the Click and Collect service was just one of the ways library staff are adapting library services and programs.’

Keep up-to-date with all of the services and programs the Library has to offer on the Library website or Facebook pages.

Information on accessing the service and how it works can be found on the Library’s website at www.rtrl.nsw.gov.au.
