Temporary Closure of Darebin Libraries

To help promote good health and limit the impacts of the coronavirus (COVID-19), Darebin Council have made the decision to close some of our community venues and services until further notice. This includes Darebin Libraries branches at Northcote, Preston, Reservoir and Fairfield.

Loans Extended

We are busy working on ways to support our community and continue to offer library services. While our branches are closed:

  • Due dates on all existing loans will be extended.
  • No overdue fines will accrue.
  • Existing reservations will be held until we can get them to you, safely.

You can continue to access our many online resources with your membership details and to return items via our chutes.
