How does Click & Collect work?


  1. Reserve items via the library catalogue or Darebin Libraries app
  2. We’ll let you know when your items are ready to collect by your usual notice method. Reservations that were available before lockdown are ready to collect now.
  3. On the day you want to collect your items, book a same-day collection via the Darebin Libraries app or the Library Collect web page. Booking a same-day collection is only available during Click and Collect operating hours.  

Or by phone

If you don’t have the app, access to internet, a current Darebin Libraries membership or you have other access needs, please give us a call on 1300 655 355 
Monday to Friday, 9am–5pm and Saturday 10am–4pm, or send us a message - we can help.
