Libraries change lives, during the pandemic and beyond.
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 (as restrictions allow), 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 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, including large print books, talking books, and dvds and magazines in a range of community languages.
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.
If you need some assistance accessing our eCollection, or would like to learn more about the digital world – we run regular Tech SOS sessions to help you get confident.
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.
We have two library branches, in Melton and Caroline Springs (as well as four access points in Aintree, Fraser Rise, Diggers Rest and Atherstone). At both library branches there are computers with NVDA (non-visual desktop access) assistive technology, and there is one computer with a modified large print keyboard and modified joystick mouse available at the Caroline Springs branch. The Melton Library branch is split level, with a lift, and an adult change room on the first floor.
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.
