We've Changed our Opening Hours
Yarra Libraries has introduced extended opening hours as of Monday 20 March 2017.
Weekly opening hours have been extended by between four and 14 hours at the Carlton, Fitzroy, North Fitzroy and Richmond branches. A total of 35 additional opening hours has been added across all branches.
There has been a three-hour reduction in weekly hours at the Collingwood branch, where the under-utilised Sunday opening slot has now been removed. The change in hours is the result of extensive community consultation and industry benchmarking, and offers greater consistency in hours across branches.
Fitzroy Children's Literature Festival
Don't miss the Fitzroy Children’s Literature Festival, Saturday 22 April 10am-4pm at Fitzroy Town Hall.
Meet local creators of your favourite children’s books at this huge day of author talks, panel discussions, storytelling sessions, entertainers, and a new book showcase.
Farewell North Fitz, Hello Bargoonga Nganjin
It's with much fondness that we have bid farewell to our North Fitzroy Library premises which closed its doors for the last time on Wednesday March 15.
But we're fine with that: our new Bargoonga Nganjin, North Fitzroy Library will open its doors to the public on Saturday April 8. Come down and join us for the grand opening!
Other Yarra Libraries branches are open during the closure, and items can be renewed online.
