Library news:

With the easing of Victorian government health restrictions, Glen Eira Libraries are open with some changes to our hours and services. Find out more on our FAQs page.





StoryTime gives you a wonderful opportunity to introduce your preschooler to the joy of reading, using their imagination and mixing with other children.   

While our libraries are closed, families can enjoy our online StoryTime sessions anytime. Discover more at reading and family activities at Library@Home.

Together with stories chosen especially for pre-schoolers, the sessions also include music, songs and rhymes. These sessions give children a fun and relaxed start to their reading development before school.

After the session children have time to select their own picture books to borrow and enjoy with the family at home.

We take pride in choosing books for StoryTime sessions that present role models for both boys and girls. We seek to avoid examples of gender stereotyping.
