Due to the COVID-19 restrictions currently in place, YPRL branches will only open for contactless Click & Collect services until restrictions ease.

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.

Whittlesea Library

Open Today

9:30 AM – 2:00 PM

3:00 PM – 7:00 PM

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.
