Business as unusual: changes to Council services
Published: 24 Mar 2020 5:02pm
Wagga Wagga City Council has changed a number of services in order to help protect against the spread of COVID-19.
Wagga Wagga City Library moves services online
The library is currently closed, however online library services are available 24/7 from rrl.nsw.gov.au/elibrary
Loan periods for all borrowed items are being extended – there is no need to return them. The library’s book return chute has been closed, with library staff requesting patrons to keep borrowed items at home. On a happy note, there will be no library fines during this time.

Wagga Wagga Civic Theatre closed
Theatre staff are currently working with producers to reschedule events where possible. All ticket holders will receive a full refund as per the Ticketing Code of Practice for cancelled events.
Staff are systematically working through a list of all ticket holders and, where possible, automatically refunding patrons. Where additional information is required, staff will contact ticket holders directly.
