Library Staff Visits

Library staff visit each library agency weekly.  Our librarians are friendly and helpful and are happy to assist in any way they can. Our librarians can help with borrowing using the self-loan kiosk, reserving and renewing items and using the catalogue. They can also help with learning about the library website, using library resources, as well as the eLibrary and digital resources. 

Librarians visit each agency on regular days and times - see the table above.

Wedderburn Library Agency

Wedderburn Library Agency is having building works carried out over the next 4-8 weeks. The library area will initially be smaller and open for three days per week until the building works are finished. Once works are complete the library will move to a larger area in the building, have significantly more shelving and books, and be open five days per week.

Elmore Library Agency

We are delighted to announce that the Elmore Athenaeum Hall will host the library agency for the town. This is a marvellous space, a grand historical building with two rooms dedicated for library use. A very heartfelt thank you goes out to the Elmore Memorial Hall Complex Committee of Management for working so collaboratively and positively with Goldfields Libraries to develop a solution in Elmore that we all think will be fantastic.

The Elmore Library Agency will be open on Mondays 11am-2pm and Fridays 10.45am-12.15pm.

Storytime sessions have now been scheduled for Elmore, and will be hosted monthly, beginning at 11.30am on Friday 17 March 2017. 

Storytime Sessions

Storytime sessions are about to get underway at many agencies. See the schedule here.

What will you find in a Library Agency?

The library agencies will have books and collection on shelves for borrowers to browse, as well as a self-loan area to borrow, reserve and return items. The agencies will be attended by local staff and volunteers during opening hours, and there will be library staff from Goldfields Library Corporation on hand once a week.

Library users will be able to browse the collection in the agency or search the library catalogue and reserve any of the 300,000 items across the entire Goldfields Libraries collection. 

  • Reserves will be delivered to agencies weekly for patrons to pick up 
  • Drop off returns, pick up reserves, browse and borrow from the collection 
  • Sit and read, browse magazines or catch up with friends 
  • Library programs such as storytimes for kids and digital literacy programs for adults will run on a regular basis
