MUNDARING's Albert Facey Memorial Library will be temporarily closed to undergo urgent repair works to the timber flooring.
The library will be closed to the public for a four-week period from Monday 8 April, reopening Monday 6 May 2019.
Manager libraries and community engagement, Shannon Foster, said measures would be taken to minimise inconvenience as much as possible.
"Mundaring Library is both an important facility and popular meeting place for our residents including parents and children, seniors and community groups," Ms Foster said.
"These replacement works will ensure our library is once again fit for the enjoyment and safety of our community.
"We would like to thank our library members for their patience and understanding while these necessary works are undertaken."
Ms Foster said standard borrowing conditions would be adjusted accordingly over the closure period:
What do I do with my borrowed items?
All existing borrowed items that would ordinarily be due for return to the library during the closure period will have their loan period extended to when the library reopens on Monday 6 May 2019.
The library's afterhours return chute will be available intermittently over the closure period, with access dependent on the work being undertaken. As an alternative, items can be returned to the Shire's Administration Building during office hours (9.00am to 4.30pm Monday to Friday) or returned to Katharine Susannah Prichard Library in Boya).
Can I borrow new items?
Between Friday 22 March and Saturday 6 April 2019 library members can borrow an extra ten items per membership to see them through the closure period. Items borrowed in this time will be due for return when the library reopens on Monday 6 May 2019.
A pop-up library will be held at Wooroloo Hall on 9 April between 9.00am and 11.30am to provide library members an opportunity to return books and borrow additional items.
Boya Library will be open for business as usual during the whole closure period.
Story Time, Baby Rhyme Time, and other regular events
Regular Story Time and Baby Rhyme Time events held at Mundaring Library will be suspended over the closure period to resume when the library reopens from Monday 6 May 2019.
Community can stay up-to-date with Mundaring Library works via the Shire website www.mundaring.wa.gov.au, Shire Facebook page, and Libraries Facebook page.
Those residents eager to visit another local library during the closure are encouraged to visit the new Katharine Susannah Prichard Library located at Boya Community Centre on Scott Street in Boya.
