KUCHING: The Sibu Municipal Council (SMC) public libraries will continue to remain closed to the public from Mar 16 to 29 during the conditional movement control order (CMCO) period.
Its chairman Clarence Ting said the libraries included the Public Library in Jalan Keranji, Grand Height Library in Jalan Mantis, and Sukun Library in Jalan Sukun.
He said for those who wish to return borrowed books from the libraries, they can return the books via the ‘Book Drop’ service.
“Book borrowing services are not allowed at the moment,” he said in a Facebook post on Monday (Mar 15).
He added that there will be no charges for overdue books during the CMCO period.
In another Facebook post, Ting said that three Urban Transformation Centres (UTCs) in Sarawak are expected to reopen today (Mar 16).
UTC Sibu was closed from Feb 15 to Mar 15 in view of the increasing Covid-19 cases in the division.
“I have appealed to SDMC to decide as today (Mar 15) is the last day (for the temporary closure). And I hope those providing essential services can reopen this week,” he said.
Sarawak Disaster Management Committee (SDMC) in a statement on Monday (Mar 15) announced that UTC Kuching, Sibu, and Miri will resume operations from March 17 from 8am to 5pm.
