For business continuity during the Omicron wave, our libraries will retain the 6pm weeknight closing time for the foreseeable future.
Our current service delivery times will allow us to better manage the potential impact of the rapidly spreading Omicron variant on staff and library services.
This decision comes a few short days after announcing our return to pre-pandemic opening hours. We hope our customers understand that the public health advice can change unexpectedly, and that a return to extended operating times is now not the best way forward.
We are aware that many people are feeling increasingly cautious about public indoor spaces and take this opportunity to remind customers that Click and Collect remains available to all library members.
Please note: Monash Public Library Service branches are open to fully vaccinated customers over 18 years and children under 18 years.
Thank you for your patience with staff and other customers as we all adjust to this new way of operating.
