Our library’s Novel Coronavirus Response Plan

Updated on Saturday 10 July 2021

In light of recent developments in NSW and mandated restrictions in the ACT, St Mark’s National Memorial Library has taken the following precautions to protect our students, staff, and community. 

All changes comply with COVID-19 Public Health Directions and other measures recommended by the ACT and Federal Health Departments. During this time, we ask Library members to assist us in following these important conditions.

Opening Hours from Monday 28 June

  • Monday to Thursday: 10:00am to 4:00pm
  • Friday: 10:00am to 2:00pm.

Face mask requirements

Face masks are now recommended in the ACT, but are no longer a requirement

Contact tracing: Use the Check in CBR app

Use of the Check In CBR app is mandatory whenever you visit the Library. Please ask staff if you need help, or do not have a device to check in on.

To check in using your own device, download the Check In CBR app to your phone or other smart device and scan the unique location QR code each time you visit.

Check In CBR will log your visit and send data to ACT Health where it will be kept securely for 28 days.

Returning visitors must check in each time they enter, as the time of your visit is required.
