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.
