Library service changes

On 6 September 2020, the Premier announced Victoria’s COVID-19 roadmap to reopening. Many of the Stage 4 restrictions remain in place, and all Glen Eira Libraries are closed until health restrictions are lifted. Due to high demand, in the short term, we can deliver reserved items to library members who reside in the City of Glen Eira only. Library chutes are open 24 hours a day. No overdue fees will be charged. Find out more on our FAQs page.
