Mobile Library: Service Disruptions

As we now often experience unpredictable weather and road closures, often it is not possible to safely run our mobile library services. This is to ensure the safety of our staff and our customers visiting the library. 

The most recent service updates will be noted below with information on the stops affected:



Due to urgent mechanical repairs, there are disruptions to our Mobile Library services over the coming weeks

Bellarine Surf Coast Mobile Library (BSCM)
Reduced services until to Wednesday 8 February (inclusive)

Golden Plains Mobile Library (GOLD)
Reduced services until to Wednesday 8 February (inclusive)

Colac Otway Shire Mobile Library (COSM)
Reduced services until to Wednesday 8 February (inclusive)

The reduced service for stops on these dates mean items on hold will be available for collection and a very small selection of items to browse.

We apologise for any inconvenience. We'll provide the next update on Wednesday 8 February.


If you need assistance, please feel free to contact any one of our libraries and staff will be able to assist you over the phone. Contact details for all libraries, including mobile libraries can be found here. And our regular mobile library timetables can be found here.
