Due to the COVID-19 restrictions currently in place, YPRL branches will only open for contactless Click & Collect services until restrictions ease.
Services will 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 to close earlier on some days).
Unfortunately the Outreach Vehicle will not be operating throughout the lockdown.
The Mobile Library will offer contactless Click & Collect service from 10.00am to 4.00pm, Monday - Friday, from various locations.
Our 24/7 return chutes will remain open and all holds and item due dates have been extended until after restrictions end and users may continue to place holds on the collection.
Yarra Plenty Regional Library offers work experience placements to secondary students who are in Year 10 and above. Work Experience placements are generally for one week during school term. YPRL is unable to offer additional work experience and/or volunteer opportunities to any youth under the age of 18 outside of the Year 10 Work Experience program.
YPRL accepts Industry and Professional Placement requests on a case-by-case basis. These placements generally take place over multiple weeks — and sometimes months — depending on the placement requirements.
