No more QR check ins or vaccination certificates required

In line with the recent Victorian Government announcements, you will no longer need to check in to our libraries, or to show a vaccination certificate upon entry.

That means no sign in, no vaccination certificate, no time limits. Come in, stay as long as you like, bring the kids, bring a coffee!

We thank everyone for their cooperation over the last couple of years - our team are always doing the best they can with changing rules and circumstances - it sure has been a rollercoaster.

We look forward to seeing you in the library soon.

A reminder to please stay home if you're feeling unwell, and to follow the Government advice on isolating.
