Yarra Libraries reopening November 3

Thursday 28 October 2021

Collingwood Library entrance from Stanton Street

In line with the State Government’s roadmap, we’re excited to announce that we’re reopening our libraries, from 10am Wednesday 3 November.

However, things will be a bit different.

As required by the Victorian Government mandate, entry to our libraries will only be permitted to people who have checked in and for those aged 12 years and 2 months or older, who can provide evidence of their full vaccination status or have a valid exemption. Staff will be on-site to assist people with getting proof of their vaccination and to assist with checking in.

Opening hours at your local branch will also look a bit different, please see below for updated opening hours at your local branch:
