Libraries Victoria

 

Due to The Victorian State Government’s courier service contract, which is used by more than 500 other organisations including the Libraries Victoria network, ending there is a state-wide service interruption to the Libraries Victoria network that will temporarily limit borrowing access from other library service providers.

As a library member of Yarra Libraries, you will still have full access to library services across the City of Yarra. However, your ability to place holds on items from other library services provided through the Libraries Victoria network will be temporarily limited until the tender process for a new state-wide courier service is completed by the Victorian Government.

Public Libraries Victoria (PLV), is the peak body for public libraries in Victoria. PLV represents all library services across the state, working together to make Victorian libraries the best they can be. 

As a participating Libraries Victoria library service, your Yarra Libraries membership can be used to borrow items, request holds for pickup and pay outstanding bills at other participating libraries outside of the City of Yarra. This includes areas like Greater Dandenong, West Gippsland, Melton and Wodonga.
