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.


History of Melbourne Racewear

An illustrated look at racing fashion with Nicole Jenkins

The history of racewear is almost as long as the history of racing, and long before ‘Fashions on the Field’ wasintroduced in 1962, Melburnians were dressing mostly elegantly, sometimes colourfully, and occasionally wackily for these important annual events.

Join fashion historian Nicole Jenkins for an illustrated look at the impact of weather, fashion changes, and London models on our local culture.

Suitable for ages 13 and up. Free event and bookings essential.
