What is a takeaway library?
With the lifting of some COVID-19 community restrictions Rockhampton Regional Council has chosen to open the Mount Morgan and Southside Library branches for takeaway services only.
Takeaway services allow you to reserve items in the comfort of your home. The library team will call you when your items are ready to collect. For more details click here.
