What you need to know

Libraries

Our libraries are more than books. In Moonee Valley you can book a room or computer, listen to music, exercise, print and photocopy, recycle, borrow seeds for a garden, learn new skills, join a book club and so much more.

Libraries update

With the recent State Government announcement of Stage 4 restrictions, all Moonee Valley Library branches will remain temporarily closed until further notice.

  • Returns chutes at all libraries are closed.
  • Due dates for borrowed materials will be extended and no late fines will be charged.
  • Access to your account and online resources remain available 24/7 and can be accessed here.

We will also continue to deliver many of our programs via our Facebook, Youtube and Instagram pages, so make sure you stay tuned to our social media for fun activities and important updates.

 

FAQ

Yes, we are currently offering two delivery services to Moonee Valley residents.

Reunited with Your Reserves allows us to send patrons books that they have requested and are waiting for them back in branch.

Library to Your Door connects eligible older or vulnerable users with a library staff member who curates and sends out a personalised collection of books to you.

Please have patience with us as we process all the currently requested deliveries, before commencing deliveries for new requests.

All items currently on loan have been automatically renewed. Overdue charges don’t apply during this closure period. You can continue to hold on to library items at home and return once we reopen. 

If you have holds ready for pick-up, we may have tried to contact you. We will continue to hold them so they will be waiting for you when we re-open. We can also remove it and put it back on shelf or we can suspend the hold for you so you can choose when you want to pick it up once we open. Please call us on 9243 1900 to discuss your options. 

Return chutes are now closed. We have extended current loans and overdue charges won’t apply during this closure period.
