Australia Day holiday

The libraries are open as usual on Sunday 26 January, then closed on Monday 27 January for the Australia Day holiday. Returns chutes will be open for your convenience. 

Book Chats

Join a reading group without having to read a prescribed, boring book! With Book Chats, there's no set book to read, and there are different themes to explore each month.

Book Chats is a relaxed and informal chat about books and reading. Plus it's a great way to meet people in your area. Come along, sit back and enjoy the discussion. Tea and coffee is provided and bookings are not required.

When and where

Carnegie Library

First Wednesday of the month: 2pm to 3pm

Elsternwick Library

Third Tuesday of the month: 2pm to 3pm

Please note: Book Chats is not held at Bentleigh Library or Caulfield Library, but we invite you to come to one of our other libraries to join Book Chats discussions. Book Chats are not held in January.
