The Victorian Government has announced today, a seven-day lockdown from midnight tonight. Our libraries will remain open today until normal closing hours and will close from tomorrow Friday 28th May and re-open on Friday 4th June. We will continue to offer our digital resources, online programs and events, caring calls and our live chat for support.
Our priority is the health and wellbeing of our staff, visitors, as well as the broader community as we deliver you a phased re-opening of library services.
Our returns chutes will be closed. Please hold onto any items that you currently have checked out as due dates will be extended.
Our in-branch events including StoryTime and Baby Rhyme Time are currently postponed.
Is not available during the Covid-19 Circuit Breaker restrictions. Click & collect services are also not currently available.
We’re continuing to call some of our most vulnerable and disconnected members to offer home delivery and any support we can.
Support is available via live chat on our website, where you can chat to a real person online, Monday to Friday 9am – 5pm.
Our range of virtual events and programs are available for you to enjoy from the comfort of your home!
All our digital resources continue to be available to library members. We have a wide range of ebooks, eaudiobooks, emagazines, digital newspapers, kid’s activities, kid’s reading resources, streaming movies and documentaries and even online study courses. Our team are working on adding new e-resources.
You can get access to our digital library online, anytime or download our app.
