Borrowing and renewing


You can borrow up to 30 items at a time.

Item loan periods:

  • Books: three weeks
  • DVDs:  three weeks
  • Magazines: two weeks
  • Language kits and ESL kits:  three weeks

Late fees

Late fees are 25 cents per day, per item. You cannot borrow if you have outstanding fines or lost items.


Items can be renewed twice (unless requested) via the library catalogue, online, in person or by telephone.

To renew your items online, enter you barcode and PIN into the 'Renewals' section on the catalogue. Click on the 'Loans' tab to view your items. Alternatively click on 'My Account' at the top of the catalogue to access renewals. 

Tick each item you want to renew and click the green Renew button and accept the renewal confirmation. You will see the updated due date next to each renewed item and a message below saying ‘renewal successful’. If your item can not be renewed an error message will display saying ‘failed to renew’.


Items can be returned to any of the 5 Moonee Valley Libraries during opening hours or through the overnight return chutes.

Library reservations

Reservations can be placed on items on loan or held at another branch. To reserve an item, visit the library catalogue and search for the item you want and when you have found it, click on the green Place Request button.

To place multiple requests, use the tick boxes next to the items and the Select an Action dropdown.

You will then be notified when the item is available for collection. It will be held for for seven days.
Speak with a staff member to change your notification method - email, phone, SMS or mail.

Inter-library loans

Items not in our collection can be requested through LibraryLink Victoria. Please note: items must be older than two years and some requests may incur fees. 

Suggest a book

We welcome suggestions for new books. Suggest a book and include as much detail as possible about the title.

Before suggesting a book

  • Check our catalogue to make sure we don't already own the item.
  • Please only request up-coming books if they will be published within the next three months.
