The Richmond Tweed Regional Mobile Library was a common sight around the region prior to the COVID-19 pandemic and it is once again going to be out and about for readers from this week.
The service covers the Northern Rivers and stopped operating last year in April when the pandemic hit. The mobile library has recently started visiting the community at its larger sites such as Pottsville, Wollongbar, and Nimbin and will this week increase its range of stops to include Goolmangar, Bangalow, and Federal as it extends its range.
‘We’re so very glad to be able to bring the Mobile Library back to our outlying communities. It’s been a much-missed service and we’re happy to be back on the road,’ said mobile library officer, Gary Dardengo.
Patrons are encouraged to use the free Click and Collect service as the safest way to use your Mobile and collect reading and listening material. Visit www.rtrl.nsw.gov.au for the full timetable, information on Click and Collect.
