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.

Did you know Jamie Oliver has a series of videos where he and his kids teach cooking skills? They are a brilliant introduction to basic cooking skills, and seeing kids in the kitchen giving it a try is a great encouragement for your kids to get involved too. This casual five-minute video making pizzas is a perfect place to start.
