The BMI is very excited to announce that the library will be open again for BMI member browsing and borrowing from Monday November 9th 2020. All visits will be time limited to ensure staff and member safety, and visitors must ensure they continue to maintain physical distancing.

All visitors will be expected to wear masks in accordance with the directions of the Chief Health Officer. Visitors will also need to sign in upon entry.

Members are also welcome to email Rosemary, or call the library (03 5331 3042) to continue utilising our ‘click-and-collect‘ service.

We will be regularly posting on our social media, and will send emails with any further updates on our circumstances.

We thank you for your continued support of the Ballaarat Mechanics’ Institute, and we hope to see you all again in the coming weeks when it is safe to do so.

Be Kind, Be Safe.
