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.
