Covid-19 Library update

The last week has seen some welcome announcements regarding the staged easing of lockdown restrictions. It’s great that we can finally start catching up with friends and family, however our branches will remain closed until we receive a clear go-ahead from the state government and the City of Port Phillip.

In the meantime, we’re still here for you and our services can be accessed online.

We still want to hear from you! Please email, comment, or message us on social media if you have any questions or thoughts about how the libraries can take our service to the next level during this lockdown.

Stay Positive!

At the library, we work hard to serve you up the best that we can find – the best books, the best resources, and (of course!) the best people.

Being in lock down hasn’t changed this, and right now our team are pulling together the ingredients to serve you up something extra special very soon - something we’re sure you will love.
