Our Services: New kind of normal

Our Services: New kind of normal
Published 2 April 2020
There have been a lot of changes over the last few weeks, including the way we deliver some of our services to you. While in some instances our doors may be temporarily shut, this is for the safety of everyone, our services remain the same - they may just look a little different.

Message from the Mayor

3 April 2020: Mayor Glenn Docherty talks on how our services are adapting for YOU as we transition to the new kind of normal. From our community service to our city operations, we are here for you.

Storytime with a twist

Our Library team are developing innovative new ways to deliver their regular weekly programs and events to you online. This week they held their first live stream Storytime session on their Facebook page. Tune in next Wednesday, 8 April at 10:30am for their Easter special.

As of Monday, 6 April the Library will be offering a home delivery service to City of Playford residents who have a library membership. To access the service contact the Library at or call them on 8256 0333.

In the meantime, don’t forget your library membership provides you access to a range of eBooks, audiobooks, digital magazines and newspapers. If you’re not already member, register now.
