Augusta Library opening times will change from 3 October 2016


The Augusta Library opening times are changing.

Starting from Monday 3 October 2016, the library will be closing at 4pm (and not 5pm) on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

This means that the library will close at the same time the Augusta Shire office closes on those days. 

The new opening times will be:

Monday : 10.00am-1.00pm and 2.00pm-4.00pm
Tuesday : 10.00am-1.00pm
Wednesday : 1.00pm-4.00pm
Thursday : 10.00am-1.00pm
Friday : 10.00am-1.00pm and 2.00pm-4.00pm

Changes to Margaret River Library wifi service


We’ve changed the way we provide wifi to our library members. Now you can access the current password by scanning your membership card at any of the Smart Serves. Ask one of our friendly staff members to show you how.

There are no longer time limits on wifi use for our members, but our bandwidth is limited and excessively large downloads will slow down the service for everyone (including you!) – so please be moderate in your use.

Parents please note that our wifi password is now freely available to all library members, so if your child has a mobile device, parental guidance is recommended.
