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.
