MidCoast Council libraries, visitor information centres and tip shops run and operated by volunteers will begin to re-open from this Wednesday, July 1.
The openings follow a further lifting of COVID-19 restrictions across the country.
"We've really enjoyed being able to welcome the community back into our spaces over the last month, and are really pleased to be able to welcome our valuable volunteers back over the coming weeks," MidCoast Council liveable communities director, Paul De Szell said.
While the majority of libraries opened at the start of June, branches run by volunteers remained closed.
However, from next Monday, July 6 Nabiac and Old Bar libraries will open their doors to the community.

"The libraries team has continued to adapt to the conditions throughout this pandemic and they're offering their usual school holiday program online in July, which will be really popular," Mr De Szell said.
"Library users will also be pleased to hear that our public computers will become available, albeit in a limited capacity, during this round of restrictions easing."
Visitor information centres in Forster and Gloucester reopened at the beginning of June, while this Friday, July 3 will mark Taree's reopening, albeit with reduced hours.
The centre will initially reopen from 9am to noon, Monday to Saturday.
Volunteer run centres at Tea Gardens, Pacific Palms and Bulahdelah will reopen under a staged approach yet to be finalised.
Taree and Gloucester tip shops will open their doors this Wednesday.
The Manning Regional Art Gallery is also welcoming back volunteers and will be reopening the smaller spaces gallery from this week.
Council is also working to reopen camping grounds as soon as possible, following a comprehensive assessment of these sites.
"We do ask our community to continue to practice social distancing, and not to come into our facilities if they are unwell or have recently been in contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19."
Venues including the Manning Entertainment Centre will remain closed at this point in time, as per the requirements of the State Government's COVID-19 Public Health Order.
