Libraries Change Lives

Libraries Change Lives Logo

Monash Public Library Service has joined Victoria’s 272 public libraries and the State Library Victoria in a statewide campaign.

The campaign seeks to highlight the role of public libraries in building literate, productive and engaged communities with the goal of ensuring libraries get the support they need to grow, and provide vital services to growing communities.

Now that the COVID-19 pandemic has closed our physcal libraries we have responded quickly by providing our library from home with online services, events, storytimes and resources. Staff are available by phone from 10am -5pm ( except Mulgrave Library).
