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.

Overdue Fee Update

As we welcome you back to our libraries, the return to pre-COVID library services is an ongoing process.

This transition includes reinstating overdue fees, which will be applied to all items borrowed from 1 September.

You are encouraged to return or renew your items before the due date to avoid overdue fees.   

Loans can be renewed twice at any branch, by phone (9524 3700), online or via the Glen Eira Libraries app. 

You will receive a reminder email three days before your items are due to be returned. Your communication preferences can be updated online.

Please note: if your items are reserved you won’t be able to renew. Online and app renewals are available on or before the due date.
