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.




The Art of Forgery with Dr Noah Charney

Stories of art forgers are intriguing and entertaining tales, but there are important lessons that the art world can draw from them, so as not to be hoodwinked in the future.

Join best-selling author and Pulitzer finalist Dr Noah Charney as he examines the most frequently-used and successful tricks employed by art forgers and their accomplices in order to pass off fakes and forgeries as lost originals, known as “provenance traps.” 

Dr Noah Charney, will examine this phenomenon using historical case studies, suggest ways in which falling into such “traps” can be avoided in the future and share the clues which have been missed by the scholars, auctioneers, and gallerists who authenticated fraudulent artworks.

Wednesday 14 October, 6.30pm-7.30pm


Participants will be emailed the link to the session on the day of the event.
