We're planning an incredible year of program and events, and are eagerly looking forward to welcoming back students, teachers, partners, and creatives to The Literature Centre. In the meantime, we are sharing the information you need to know about how we are implementing our COVID Safety Plan and the State Government mandates to provide a safe environment for students and guests to the Centre.

The Centre's staff are committed to the health and safety of our guests, collaborators and the community. All Centre staff and contracted authors & illustrators who we are working with this year are double vaccinated and can show proof of vaccination.
To protect staff and visitors, The Literature Centre will:
  • Keep the Centre's gate shut, opening only for schools and visitors as per normal practice.
  • Limit the total number of visitors for larger events. 
  • Promote/recommend cashless payments in the bookshop. 
  • Setup smaller chair rows for students in the main gallery, or seated on the floor, with separate seating rows for teachers.
  • Require all staff and visitors, excluding childern to show proof of vaccination. 
  • Require all staff and visitors to scan in with SafeWA App 

To protect staff and visitors, The Literature Centre will: 

  • Provide sanitiser at entry and exit points, sales points, staff offices and other high use areas. 
  • Provision of cleaning supplies to staff to wipe high touch items/areas in public and staff spaces. 
  • Ensures all visitors to the site, including staff and contractors, sanitise on arrival. 
  • Staff remain/use their own desks, phones and equipment daily and sanitise regularly. 
  • Provide tongs, plates and napkins for any catering ordered for events to avoid hand contact.
