Library reopening 29 May 2020

Our libraries are closed. Find out about our book delivery service.

Our libraries have temporarily closed in line with Stage 4: Stay at Home restrictions in place across metropolitan Melbourne for the next 6 weeks. 

Some services are still available to our members and our digital library can be accessed anytime. 

Book delivery service

We are offering a temporary delivery service to Boroondara library members who are Boroondara residents.

Deliveries will be contactless, with items placed in a sealed box or padded bag and left at your door or mailbox. Dependent upon demand, the frequency of deliveries may vary.

You can order books in two ways:

Reserve online

  • Reserve items by finding them in our catalogue and clicking Place reservation.
  • Then mail us at [email protected] or call on 9278 4666 and provide us with your details, including membership number and any information that will help us deliver the item when we arrive at your home.

Request a Bundle & Collect service

Let us know about your reading preferences and we will make a selection on your behalf. We will then deliver them to your residence. 

To request Bundle & Collect:

  • Complete the Ask a Librarian eForm. Select General enquiry and tell us in the text box that you would like to participate in the Bundle & Collect service. Our staff will contact you. 
  • Alternatively, call us on 9278 4666 to speak to a member of staff who will assist you with your Bundle & Collect request. Please have your membership number ready.
