All our libraries have now reopened to visitors and we look forward to seeing you again.

In line with the directions of the Victorian Chief Health Officer, there will be limits on the number of people using our libraries at any given time. We ask that you plan your visit to the library being mindful of the length of your visit to allow others the opportunity to access our facilities.

Hygiene protocols, social distancing and checking in using the QR code system will continue, while compulsory face masks and density limits have been reintroduced. Please stay home if feeling unwell.

Library loan due dates and reservation collection dates have been extended until Monday 21 June. If you are unable to visit our libraries your reservations will be waiting for you and your loans will not be overdue.

Reservation collection

You can visit the library to collect your reservation if it is in your 25km radius. When you place a reservation, you will receive notification when the item is available.

Reservations can be collected during opening hours.

Learn more about reserving library items.

Book returns

Our return chutes are open, however items that you currently have on loan have been extended until Monday 21 June 2021. So you do not have to rush to return your books to us.
