Home Library Service

Our Home Library Service delivers library items to any Boroondara resident who has difficulty visiting our libraries. You can borrow anything from our catalogue or ask for specific titles when you speak to one of our staff or volunteers.

Our staff or volunteers will also collect the items from you and return them to the library.
