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.
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. Keep an eye out for details of the huge grand opening we have planned.
Our North Fitzroy customers are advised that to accomodate the moving period, items borrowed from North Fitzroy since 23 February, will not be due until 10 April. Additionally, any items still on the holds shelf at time of the closure will be taken to the new branch where they will be available until 10 April.
Other Yarra Libraries branches will be open during the closure, and items can be renewed online.

Yarra Libraries now has PlayStation 4 available to play any time during opening hours at our Richmond and Fitzroy branches.
Library members can book one hour a day to play, choosing from a range of fun and exciting games.
Bookings can be made at the front desk, or online.
