Whittlesea Library is the newest of the Yarra Plenty Regional Library branches, having officially opened in 2014. Situated in the Whittlesea Community Activity Centre, the library is like a second home for our members as it provides a lot of heart and a strong country feel.

Whittlesea Library offers many welcoming spaces, including an outdoor courtyard with a vegetable garden and room for children to play. This is an extremely popular spot for families who like to sit and read to their children. We also have a lounge area dedicated for teenagers that is appointed with a television and couches, where gaming is often enjoyed. For those looking for a place to study, Council rooms can be booked through the library. And for those quieter moments, we have a fireplace that is warm and welcoming.

Our library offers a variety of events including Storytimes, Strong Girls, and Line Dancing — we look forward to welcoming you to some of these events.

We love our library and are immensely proud that it is very much part of our community.
