Until further notice.

In accordance with current state government directions, all Goulburn Valley Libraries including the Mobile Library will close to the public on Thursday 6th August until further notice.

Goulburn Valley Libraries CEO Kevin Preece said, “We are so disappointed for everyone who waited so long for us to re open after the first COVID-19 shutdown. Our communities rely on us for their books, DVDs, social connections, access to the internet and much, much more!

Our Mobile Library recommenced travelling to small rural communities last week and will now be off the road again. This is so disappointing for these small communities who have been patiently waiting for a return of the service.
Our wonderful Librarians will be working behind the scenes to keep our CLICK and COLLECT service going while we are shut down. Simply go on-line and search our library catalogue, place your chosen items on hold, and wait for a phone call from us to arrange a pick-up time at the library. It is that easy! Alternatively, call us and we will select books for you.

Now is a great time to learn about all the other stuff that your library does online!

We have a great range of FREE eBooks, eAudiobooks, eMagazines available for adults and kids. People can join online and get access straight away. We also offer video streaming of movies and documentaries through our Kanopy streaming service. Why pay for Netflix?

Kids don’t miss out either. Watch children’s stories via StoryBox Library and child friendly video with Kanopy Kids, or learn coding with Busy Code – these will help keep the kids entertained at home.

It doesn’t stop there! Get online and learn a language, train up on your computer skills or do some family research with Ancestory.com – all FREE with your library membership.

So….please take the last chance to browse and borrow from the collection at your Libraries until we close on Thursday 6 August.”
