All libraries are closed on public holidays.
Queenscliff Library is currently closed in preparation for its move to a temporary location to allow construction of the Queenscliffe Hub to begin; the Library is expected to reopen at 18 Hesse Street Queenscliff in late November.
Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions for regional Victoria, some libraries will have temporarily-amended opening hours. For more information about library services at this time, please click here.
The Queenscliff Library is housed in a beautiful heritage building. Queenscliff has had some form of library service since 1856. In the mid 1880s, public subscription raised £900 towards the cost of our current building, designed by Geelong architect Joseph Watts. Dr David Williams, chairman of the trustees, laid the foundation stone on 23 June 1887 and the building was completed in 1888. The building was extended in 1974/75 and renovated under a Living Libraries grant in 2002. In 1894, the library reportedly contained nearly 2,000 volumes – currently, we have about 14,700 items.
