Ocean Grove Library upgrade – temporary closure

27 April 2022

Customers are advised that Ocean Grove Library will be closed for refurbishments from Monday 2 May and will re-open to the public on Monday 9 May.

During this period, the library is undergoing an upgrade to improve the interior spaces of the building. Customers can look forward to new-look flooring with fresh carpeting, and an updated front awning.

Whilst the branch is closed, Ocean Grove customers will be unable to collect holds from the library branch. Events and programs, including all preschool events, scheduled to take place at Ocean Grove Library are cancelled for this week.

As the returns chute at Ocean Grove Library will also be closed during refurbishments, customers are asked to return collection items to any other library in the network. Items due to be returned to Ocean Grove will be automatically renewed.

Your closest alternative branches are:

We apologise for any inconvenience caused by the temporary closure of the Ocean Grove Library and look forward to welcoming customers back into the refreshed space on Monday 9 May.

Thank you for your understanding.
