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. From 14 September, we're delivering to Home Library Service customers, and rolling out our “Pick and Post” service, delivering reserved items to library members at their homes. Library chutes will open 24 hours a day. No overdue fees will be charged. Find out more on our FAQs page.

 

 

 

Premiers' Reading Challenge

We support the Victorian Premiers’ Reading Challenge which encourages children to read a set number of books. They record their efforts online and keep track of their progress. Children who meet their reading targets receive a certificate signed by the Victorian Premier and former Premiers.

The popular program is open to Victorians from birth to Year 10. 

Regular reading from an early age is vital for success at school - and has lifelong benefits. The Challenge encourages your child to read more and promotes a love of reading. ​

Books are added to the reading lists regularly by an expert panel which includes teachers and librarians.

Books available

You should be able to find many suitable books in your school, at home and at Glen Eira Libraries. Books not listed on the Challenge book list can also be added as personal choice books.
