Fairfield Library customers will be able to borrow library items through an 'order and collect' service from June 1.

The order and collect service will enable library customers to reserve library items, including books, audiobooks, tablets, videos and DVDs over the phone or online and select a pick up location.

Fairfield City Mayor Frank Carbone said Council is focused on finding new ways for residents to use our libraries during the COVID-19 pandemic.

"We know residents love and need access to our amazing collections for leisure, for work and for study. Council is doing everything it can to make our collections available and accessible to everyone," Mayor Carbone said.

"Order and collect is in addition to the vast collection of ebooks, emagazines, movies, learning apps and databases available online.

"Council will continue to progressively open our physical libraries as it becomes safe and practical to do so.

"The health and wellbeing of our residents is still our top priority," Mayor Carbone said

Council will disinfect all returned items and quarantine them for 36 hours to ensure the health and wellbeing of residents.
