Libraries change lives.
We have two library branches, in Melton and Caroline Springs, and four access points in Aintree, Atherstone, Diggers Rest and Fraser Rise. Both library branches have computers with NVDA (non-visual desktop access) assistive technology. Caroline Springs Library also has a modified large print keyboard and modified joystick mouse for user ease. Melton Library is split level with an adult change room on the first floor.
We provide a vibrant library service and arts program that moves with the community to bring opportunities for social connection, lifelong learning, creative expression AND access to great books, DVDs and magazines. Visit us in branch or explore our home library service, and online resources and programs – whatever suits you best. It’s free, all you need is a library card. We’re also FINE FREE – that means no more fines, but please remember to return your items on time.
We believe that libraries change lives – whether it’s by providing access to social craft groups, art exhibitions, streaming services or a great read; one patron even found her long lost brother via the family history program!
Our Home Library Service is a personalised service in which items are delivered and collected regularly from your door.
Our eCollection provides access to eBooks, eAudiobooks, eMagazines and newspapers that you can read or listen to on your device. There are also streaming sites for music and movies, and quality courses for lifelong learning on many topics.
We also host hundreds of free interesting and fun events for all ages each year, ranging from author talks to film clubs, art workshops and early years programs that incorporate AUSLAN.
If you are planning a visit to a library branch, we have access keys available that include more helpful information like the venue’s accessible features, layout, available parking and distances from the car park to the door.
