Yarraville Library Roof Renewal Works

Yarraville Library will be closed from Monday 26 August and reopen Monday 23 September

Services and programs offered over the course of the closure


During the 4 week period, there will be opportunities for the community to pick up their reservations from Cup and Bean Cafe at 20 Wembley Avenue, Yarraville.

Returns Chute

Yarraville Library's returns chute will be closed for the duration of the works. All loans from Yarraville Library will be extended until Tuesday 24 September to cover the closure. Library items can be returned to any other branch as normal during this period.

Story Time and Baby Rhyme Time

Story Time and Baby Rhyme Time will be held in McIvor Reserve, situated behind the library. This is close to the library and within walking distance for those families and carers that usually attend these programs at Yarraville Library. These sessions will run weather permitting. In the event that they need to be cancelled, we will provide up-to-date information at the top of this page. Please see below for schedule.
