Meanwhile, you can still get your reading fix with Click & Collect. Simply search our online library catalogue, place your chosen items on hold, and wait for a phone call from us to arrange a contactless pick-up time at your local library.

Go to www.gvlibraries.com.au and select My Account. Log in using your membership number and PIN, and start selecting your books, DVDs, magazines or audiobooks. Call your local branch on 1300 374 765 if you need assistance, or our staff will place the holds for you.
