On the Australia Day public holiday on Monday 28 January, some of our services and centres may be closed or have different hours. Please see details of all affected services.

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.
