Library to Your Door
The home delivery service is available to all residents of Brimbank who are Brimbank Library members. We will deliver items to your home – while maintaining safe social distancing practices.
Simply reserve your items, and choose your Pickup location at the branch closest to your home address. When you receive notification your items are available, call that branch to arrange delivery. If you are not sure what you want, call your closest library and have a chat to our friendly and knowledgeable staff about your interests - we will search our shelves and find something for you.
Items will be delivered to your door at no charge.
If you are not a library member, you can join online. Library membership is free.
Click and Collect Reservations
If you have received a notification that an item you have requested is available, telephone the Library between 9.30am and 5.00 pm, Monday to Friday, to arrange collection at any Brimbank library within seven days of receiving the notification.
Click and Collect Printing
Need to print from home?
We’re pleased to offer a Click and Collect Printing service. Submit your print job through the library website and collect at your selected branch.
You can continue to access our range of eResources online. We have a wide range of books, magazines, newspapers and more, all available from your computer or device free with your Library membership. Visit the eResources page for a full list.
Measures to protect public health
All people visiting the library to pick up Click & Collect items must wear a face mask (unless an exemption applies) and either use the QR code or register your visit with staff, in line with government regulations.
Please do not visit the Library if you, or a person you are in close contact with, are unwell.
All Library patrons and staff are expected to practice social distancing and hygiene etiquette at all times.
Although these precautions minimise the risk for customers and staff, if you are concerned about the risk please do not visit the Library. For residents who cannot visit the library or are self-isolating, please call your nearest branch to discuss options for accessing collections.
Brimbank Libraries are not quarantining or cleaning items when they are returned to the Library.
The Libraries continue to undertake increased cleaning and sanitisation in the space as well as ask customers and staff to sanitise their hands during their visit. Due to the way a library operates, with items being available for customers to browse and return to the shelves, it is not possible to continually re-clean books that may have been touched by customers. This makes cleaning or quarantining returned items redundant.
We understand this is a difficult time for many people as we try to limit the spread of the Coronavirus, and we will continue to support our members as much as we can in other ways.
