Coronavirus (COVID-19) Important Updates

Community and Business responsibilities: COVID-Safe Plan

Community Services and Businesses that were previously directed to close and now reopened must complete a COVID-Safe Plan before they can reopen.

This Plan will outline how your staff and patrons can be kept safe from COVID-19. The plan must be completed and made available at your business premises. If your business was allowed to reopen during Step 1 of South Australia’s Roadmap to Recovery, you must complete a Plan.

If your committee or group has not completed the COVID-Safe Plan, or does not have the plan available at your premises when requested, you can be fined up to $5000 on the sport for non-compliance, or face prosecution.

The Flinders Mobile Library

The Flinders Mobile Library began as a demonstration project in 1982 from a proposal by the Libraries Board of South Australia made in early 1981. The Library was originally run from the Port Pirie Public Library using stock from the Library Board’s collection. The service was to originally cover the Council Areas of Laura, Gladstone, Crystal Brook, Mount Remarkable and Redhill.

By the early 2000’s the library was offering services to towns within the Council Districts of Mount Remarkable, Northern Areas and Port Pirie. The towns covered were; Gladstone, Laura, Appila, Wirrabara, Stone Hut, Redhill, Koolunga, Yacka, Port Germein, Georgetown, Melrose, Wilmington, Gulnare, Spalding, Booleroo Centre, and Murray Town.

The service now also included visits to the Primary Schools in Gladstone, Laura, Wirrabara, Koolunga, Port Germein, Georgetown, Melrose, Wilmington, Spalding and the Booleroo District School. Each of these towns and schools were visited fortnightly throughout the year.

The Flinders Mobile Library Board, in consultation with the constituent Councils approved the purchase of a new library vehicle. This process took most of 2003 and resulted in the new library truck coming into service in July 2004.

The new library truck provided a safer and more comfortable environment for patrons and staff. An important new feature was the inclusion of a wheelchair lifter to provide access to all of our community members. The new service also provided internet access to patrons for the first time.
