We are committed to providing a shared, safe place with respect for all

By entering our libraries, you agree to:

  • Treat others with respect and courtesy at all times
  • Follow instructions given by library staff
  • Take responsibility for your own belongings; we advise not leaving any item unattended
  • Be mindful of your noise level. Conversation is welcome yet we must also be respectful of the needs of others
  • Respect library property and keep library spaces clean
  • Ensure any children under the age of twelve that you are responsible for are supervised
  • Refrain from bringing along animals when you visit, unless they are a registered guide or assistance animal
  • Refrain from consuming alcohol, drugs and smoking at the library.
Please assist our staff in making your visit enjoyable by cooperating with their requests.

Unacceptable behaviour will lead to customers being asked to leave the library.

Important note: you must also abide by our COVID-19 Conditions of Entry:
Victorian law requires visitors aged 18 years and older to show acceptable proof of COVID-19 double vaccination, or an authorised medical exemption, to enter library branches. You will also need to check in for contact tracing purposes.

From of 11.59pm on Friday 25 February face masks are not required, but we do recommend them.

Further information about visiting Darebin Libraries during the COVID-19 pandemic can be found on our Visiting and COVID-19 page and upon entry to the library.
