Port Macquarie Branch Library Imaginarium

COVID-19 Safe Management

Our Libraries in Port Macquarie, Laurieton and Wauchope are currently open Monday to Friday, 10am-4pm.

Services available: browsing and borrowing only. Due to COVID-19 safety requirements there will be no computer access, photocopying or printing until further notice.

Visitors will need to sanitise their hands on entry, maintain physical distancing and limit visits to 20 minutes. We appreciate this is not the level of access you're accustomed to, however we ask for your patience during the current times.

Thanks in advance for your understanding.

A playground for your imagination is the best way to describe the ‘Imaginarium’ at Port Macquarie Library.

Whether you want to record a song, make a video or tell a story, the studio features a wide range of recording equipment and software ideal for creative minds keen to experiment or groups wanting to preserve important events.

All library members have access to the Imaginarium’s range of tools - and the opportunity to create and capture digital content to your hearts content.

The only limit is your imagination.
