Our website and all eResources will not be accessible from 27 November to 2 December while we migrate to a brand new website. Return chutes will also be closed at branches during this time.

Covid-19 update: Eight YPRL branches have now reopened, while the Hatch at Ivanhoe, the Hurstbridge Hub, and the Mobile Library continue to provide Click & Collect services. However the new Ivanhoe Library is yet to open.
