A range of Council services are available at Tuggerah, Lake Haven and The Entrance Libraries. Pay your rates, register your dog or cat and lodge a general query.
Customers are also able to use a Customer Contact Kiosk at these Branches. These allow online self service in a range of Council functions and have a direct customer contact hot line available to provide answers on a full range of inquiries.
Home Library service
This is a free service for residents who are unable - either temporarily or permanently - to visit a library.
To be eligible, residents need to live in Wyong Shire and provide a medical certificate confirming their inability to visit a library in person.
This service involves a wide variety of reading, listening and viewing material. Items are selected by library staff to meet your personal preference. These are delivered to your door free of charge each month. Contact the Home Library Service Coordinator on (02) 4350 1578, but note that there may be a waiting period.
Talk to a Justice of the Peace
Members of the Tuggerah Lakes Branch of the NSW Justices' Association visit Toukley, Lake Haven and Tuggerah Libraries each week to witness signatures and certify documents free of charge.
They can be found at Toukley Library between 10.30am and 1pm each Monday, Lake Haven Library between 9am and 1pm every Thursday and at Tuggerah Library between 9am and noon each Saturday. Please note they are not available on the Saturday of a long weekend.
If you need the services of a Justice of the Peace at other times please contact the NSW Justices' Association.
If you enjoy reading, we have Book Clubs to suit everyone. Contact your nearest Branch for further details.
If you are running your own reading group, we have kits that provide everything you need. Each kit has 10 copies of a title and may also include:
- The title in DVD and/or audio format
- The title in large print
- Study notes
Requests for titles must be made six weeks in advance. However, no guarantee is given that the selected titles will be available within this time period. Kits are issued to a co-ordinator who is responsible for liaising with the library and collecting and returning all book kits by the due date. To use the service, book club members must also be members of the Wyong Shire Library Service. Kits are lent for 6 weeks. Contact your nearest Branch for details.
The Library Service maintains special interest collections.
