You now need to register your details when entering Cockburn Libraries

Update 5 December 2020 – Mandatory Contact Registers

The WA Government has announced contact registers will be mandatory for specified businesses and venues from Saturday, 5 December to assist with COVID-19 contact tracing if needed.

When visiting our libraries you will need to sign-in with your name and contact details. The easiest way to do this is to use the SafeWA app, which allows you to scan a QR code to register your details quickly and hygienically.

Using the SafeWA app

Download the SafeWA app from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store.

Our libraries will also have an alternative contact register system for visitors who do not have the app.
