COVID-19 & Library Services

Under alert level 1 all libraries are open to all users, but there are still some exceptions to business as usual/pre-COVID-19 conditions.

  • You will still be expected to either swipe your Canterbury Card, or use the QR codes for contact tracing location tracking.
  • Postgraduate and staff 'click and post' postal service will remain an option until some way through semester 2 - to help us manage due dates and grace periods we may change your borrower account to a distance borrower account if you select Postal Service pick up options).
  • Fines have been reinstated. Any overdue items returned after 10 July will set fines for the whole overdue period (not just for the overdue days from 10 July).  Please contact us if you have concerns about fines.
