We have more than 500,000 physical and online items for our members to borrow, and they are borrowed around 2.4 million times each year.

In Victoria, only the State Library has a larger collection.

Members can borrow items for the whole family - adults, young adults and children - both from our libraries and through our online collections.

Items for use in the library only

Some items can only be used in the library, not borrowed to take away:

  • Newspapers are available daily to read in the library
  • Restricted local history collection
  • Dictionaries, atlases and street directories.

Don’t forget, we also offer events in our libraries for the local community, from children’s storytime to author talks.
