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.

Lalor Library is a welcoming community hub conveniently located in the centre of the Lalor Shopping Precinct. A place where the community can browse and borrow from the collection, and access a wide range of services; we also offer titles in our LOTE languages of Greek, Croatian, Serbian, Italian, Polish, Spanish, Vietnamese, Hindi, Punjabi, Arabic, and Chinese.

However, we find that it is the social connection that lies at the heart of this library. Our Storytime sessions bring new parents together while providing a quality early-years program for babies, toddlers, and preschoolers alike.

We are enormously proud to offer a Toy Library for younger children, and a technology-based Learning Library for older children. We also offer a Science Club for older children with enquiring minds.

Our language Café sessions encourage members from diverse backgrounds and cultures to come together and share stories and discuss life in Australia. And our Weekly Seniors group is a long-running institution for people to gather each week to chat, play games, form connections, and enjoy a cuppa!

We look forward to welcoming you to our library.
