We are now transitioning to our new home at Bentleigh Library and Youth Hub, opening on Wednesday 26 October with our family-friendly Open Day. Services will still be available at Caulfield, Elsternwick and Carnegie libraries - as well as online. You can also return your books to any of these branches while we are moving. Check out our full FAQ for more information and follow us on social media for updates.
