Justice of Peace service returns to Libraries
  • Friday 09 October 2020

Sunshine Coast Council Libraries’ popular free Justice of Peace service is now available at Beerwah, Coolum, Kawana and Maroochydore Libraries by booking via email or phone.

Community Portfolio Councillor David Law said he was pleased to see the dedicated volunteer JPs return to the libraries.

“Many people in our community rely on this service, so it’s great to see it recommencing in a COVID-safe way,” Cr Law said.

“The health and safety of staff, volunteers and the community remains our highest priority so customers will be required to make an advance booking with library staff to use the JP service.

“Customers are also asked to bring their own pen and continue adhering to social distancing requirements, including good hygiene and not attending if you are feeling unwell.

“JPs will be available at certain times throughout the week. To check availability visit the library website, library.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au to view the schedule.”

To make a JP booking:

  1. Speak to a member of library staff in a library branch, via phone: 07 5475 8989, or email: libraries@sunshinecoast.qld.au
  2. Make sure to bring your own pen
  3. Reschedule your booking if you are feeling unwell on the day.

All Sunshine Coast Library branches are now open Monday to Friday 9am-5pm as well as their normal pre-COVID Saturday hours.

The library Click & Collect service remains available for Sunshine Coast library card holders, and the community is reminded to make use of the library’s extensive online programs and growing eLibrary collection.
