New Library Rules from Monday 11 October when the 70% roadmap comes in. Here's how it pans out:

  • Only fully vaccinated people 16 and over can visit the library (please show the Library staff your evidence of vaccination).
  • Those under 16 who aren't vaccinated can use the library if they are accompanied by a fully vaccinated adult (please show evidence of vaccination).
  • If you're not vaccinated and want to borrow, we will happily leave your borrowed goodies at the Library's main door.
  • Home delivery is still available.
  • There are loads of digital resources available on the Western Riverina Libraries site:
  • Be kind to our staff and to any frontline staff when they ask for evidence of vaccination. It's not their choice, its the law!

It's a fantastic facility for all members of the community! Previously located at the Old Court House, the current library was opened on 15 April 2009. This striking building has a combination of historic and modern influences and is a replica to the original “Banksi” which once stood at the site. Some of the material was recycled from the original building, including a front window, doors, a mantel piece and ceiling rose which is a feature in the “Banksi” room, named after the original building.

Another impressive part of the building is the glass panels in the entrance. These were created by local artist Helene Mortlock and showcase Jerilderie's rich history with drawings and photos. The panels can be viewed during normal library opening hours.

The library also has a separate meeting room available for hire, the Monash Media Room.  Bookings for the Monash Media Room can be made through the Council Office, by telephoning 03 5886 1200. Monash Media Room Floor Plan

We have free WiFi which can be accessed from both inside and outside of the library building.
