One Million Stories
Yarra Libraries, in partnership with Yarra Family and Children's Services and Alice Springs Public Library, has just launched the One Million Stories project to celebrate and recognise the contribution that a whole community can make to the learning outcomes of our children.
You can be a part of the program by registering your family and tallying every time you share a story with your children. Learn more

Opening Hours Review
Yarra Libraries is looking into revised opening hours for its branches, aimed at increasing access for all.
This follows a review of library opening hours across Yarra earlier this year. The review examined current visit and loan levels and benchmarked against six other library services within metropolitan Melbourne.
As a result, two new cost-neutral options for opening hours for our branches are available for the community to decide on. Have your say by participating in our online survey.
Watch your favourite Australian stories read by superstar storytellers with our new Story Box service.
Story Box is an amazing online ‘reading room’ where children can connect, engage and be inspired by a range of quality Australian stories read on film by some wonderfully engaging storytellers. And it's free for Yarra Libraries members at our Downloads and Streaming page!
