Due to the COVID-19 restrictions currently in place, YPRL branches will only open for contactless Click & Collect services until restrictions ease.
Branches are open a little later than normal on Monday – Friday, at 9.30am, and close a little later, at 7.00pm, Monday – Thursday (with Whittlesea and Diamond Valley close earlier on some days).
Unfortunately the Outreach Vehicle will not be operating throughout the lockdown.
The Mobile Library has encountered an issue and will be off the road until we're able to resolve it. We will be servicing the Mobile Library stops with our Outreach Vehicle until the Mobile Library is repaired.
Our 24/7 return chutes remain open, all item due dates have been extended until after restrictions end, and users may continue to place holds on the collection.
New and popular titles, fast!
YPRL is pleased to announce the newest collection that will help connect members with their next great read: Book Express.
And, it has proven so popular, we have now extended it to three of our branches!
What is Book Express?
Book Express is a collection of books, immediately visible upon entering the library. The books are chosen by our expert librarians because they are the best, newest, and most popular fiction and non-fiction titles.
You can recognise these books by their stripy sticker.
We may also have copies of these chosen books as part of our usual library collection, but we find that popular titles often have lots of holds and a long waiting time. Therefore, we have put some copies of these hot reads aside for Book Express, so you can walk in and immediately borrow them. No waiting!
