All Stonnington Libraries are closed until further notice.

After careful consideration and discussions regarding the rapidly changing COVID-19 situation, our libraries are closed until further notice. This includes all four library branches: Malvern, Phoenix Park, Prahran and Toorak/South Yarra, and the Stonnington History Centre.

We understand that a library is an important place for many, and we’re working through how we can continue to safely provide a library service to you. We are slowly transitioning our programs online through our social media channels. Please follow us on FacebookInstagram and Twitter. If you haven’t yet already, we encourage you to discover our extensive eLibrary of eBookseAudiobooksdigital magazines and newspapersmusic and film streamingeReference and eLearning

Please note our return chutes are closed, hang onto your items until we re-open. All current loans have been renewed and overdue charges will not apply. 

We are able to assist you with accessing our eLibrary, basic tech help, research and reading enquiries. Please contact our libraries for assistance between 10am – 4pm, Monday to Friday.
