Happy Easter from all the staff at the Margaret River and Augusta Libraries
We want to let all parents know about a system change that will affect our Junior and Young Adult members.
Effective immediately, all Junior and Young Adult membership types will now be able to use their library cards to access the internet on our public PCs. The library wifi is also freely available and not restricted by age.
If you would prefer your child to not be able to log themselves onto a PC session, please ensure you supervise them at the libraries.
We encourage all parents to have regular ‘internet safety’ talks with their children. Click here to find some helpful links to help with your chats. Then scroll down to the ‘Young People’ section:
We are so lucky – we have regular wild visitors to the organic garden at the Margaret River Library. Last week we hosted a very relaxed quenda! It wasn’t at all bothered by the presence of library staff, and even posed for this photo.
Quenda are amazing creatures. Click here to find out more about them.
This month is all about girl-power!
Settle in for some seriously entertaining movies showcasing the lives and achievements of some seriously amazing women.
Beamafilm is available free to library members – have your library card handy and click here to find out more.
In the meantime, here are a few more titles to tempt you… 🙂

Margaret River Library will be closed for Labour Day on Monday March 1st
Open again on Tuesday at 10am
We apologise for any inconvenience. Feel free to use the after-hours chute for your returns. Access to our online services is available at amrlibraries.com
As of 6pm tonight, the libraries will return to pre-lockdown hours, which means you can visit the Margaret River Library from 10am tomorrow, Saturday 6th February.
Augusta Library will be open from 10am on Tuesday 9th February.
Well done to all our community for complying with the temporary lockdown and ensuring we could all get back to our current version of ‘normal’ 🙂
Please look out for any changes issued by the WA Government at https://www.wa.gov.au/ as this may result in further changes to Shire facilities opening hours and services.
Library staff have been busily investigating how we can best serve our community during this trying time. We’ve been through lockdown before, but this time the rules imposed by the State Government are a little different.
This is what you need to know (and please spread the word!):
- Libraries are not permitted to offer Click & Collect during the current lockdown, but don’t worry – we’ll be holding on to your reserved items for an extra few weeks to make sure that you don’t miss out! As soon as pick-ups are permitted again, we’ll let you know.
- We’re also required to close our After Hours Book Return chute, so please hang on to your items for now. We don’t mind if they are overdue – you won’t be penalised for that. We are in the process of organising the renewal of all current loans, so don’t be surprised if your due-back date suddenly changes.
- Online resources are available so that you can still enjoy a fresh supply of books, magazines and movies. Click here to explore the range.
As always, we are here to help and support our community. If you have any concerns about your membership, or need guidance on how to access e-resources, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org Please note: Our staff are currently working from home, so please email us rather than phone the libraries.
Stay home, stay safe and be kind to each other! We look forward to seeing you all again on the other side.
