The new Ivanhoe Library and Cultural Hub will open on Wednesday 10 March! Our Click & Collect service operating from the Hatch will cease from 3pm on Tuesday 9 March.

The Diamond Valley Library is now closed for renovations until mid-winter. We've opened a Click & Collect service from the nearby council office.

The Mobile Library will be off the road until 15 March due to a mechanical failure, in the meantime we'll be providing Click & Collect services at all stops in a van instead.

Care Box: sending care to those who need it most

YPRL Staff

9 November, 2020

With restrictions easing, we are now delivering Care Boxes to anyone in the community who is unable to attend a library branch.

If you would like to receive a Care Box, please call your local branch or complete the request form below. Our staff will gather your holds, or even select a small bundle of material based on your preferences to be posted out to your home. Delivery will be contactless via our drivers. Members will be required to hold onto the items until they can return them to the library.
