Monash Public Library Service has now reintroduced more safe but limited services.
All branches are open from 10am-6pm Monday to Friday and 9am-4pm Saturdays except for Mulgrave which is open from 10am-5pm Tuesdays, Wednesday 2pm-7pm and Thursdays 1.30pm-5pm. Libraries will remain closed on Sundays until further notice.
Libraries will limit the number of customers in the library at any one time dependent on the available space at each branch and numerous cleaning and preventative measures have been implemented.
Initially there will be four main reasons to visit the library:
- self collection of reserved items. You will receive an available reservation email or letter
- to use a public access computer. Computer use will be limited to a single 1 hour session per day
- to ask a question of staff
- to browse our collections for a short period of time
All customers will be required to provide their name and phone number for possible contact tracing.
Each library will have a concierge who will greet you on arrival and provide all the assistance and direction to complete your visit.
Glen Waverley Justice of the Peace service has resumed each Wednesday. Clayton Library Justice of the Peace service resumes Thursday 2 July.
We are not yet able to deliver programs such as group classes and storytimes in our libraries but will continue to deliver programs online wherever possible. Studying in the library is not available.
We are committed to reintroducing services safely and are implementing a number of strategies to resume essential services while meeting health and safety requirements.
