Overview

Welcome back to our libraries. We are so happy to have our customers back.

Monash Public Library Service welcomes the news that the Victorian Government is ending the requirement for public libraries to enforce customer check-ins and restrict entry to only vaccinated customers.

Opening hours

 

All branches have resumed their normal opening hours including evening hours. Clayton, Mount Waverley, Oakleigh and Wheelers Hill Libraries will close at 8.30pm each weeknight, and Glen Waverley Library will close at 9pm each weeknight.

Mulgrave Library has now reopened following building upgrade works.

 

Branch Opening Hours

  

No Check-in requirements 

From Saturday 23 April, all customers will be able to enjoy the same, unrestricted access to library collections, programs and services, regardless of vaccination status.

 

What will be available to library visitors?

Customers who enter the library will have full access to collections, PCs, printing and photocopying facilities, study spaces and Wi-Fi. Interlibrary loans service is currently suspended.

 

 

The wearing of properly fitted face masks is optional.

 

What will be available to people who can’t, or choose not, to enter the library?

We understand that people with health vulnerabilities may still not wish to enter a busy public space, so a click and collect service will continue to be offered to those who need it.

 

Tech help and Programs/Events

  • Tech help has now recommenced, and many library programs and events will be held in the library.
  • Our popular Justice of the Peace Program has resumed at Glen Waverley Library, Oakleigh Library and Clayton Library. Please note service can change due to unavailability of the JP.
