Library support during COVID-19

Library Service

Mitchell Shire Libraries are open.

We are pleased to be taking steps towards reopening our libraries at full capacity. Until that time we must continue to follow State Government safety guidelines.

This means at this stage of the reopening process, Mitchell Shire Libraries can allow up to 10 visitors inside at any one time. We would appreciate it if you could keep your visits brief (maximum of 1 hour).

Safety remains our highest priority, so please remember to practice social distancing, use hand sanitiser and wear a face mask.

  • Please don't visit if you are unwell.
  • Please wear a face mask.
  • Sanitise hands upon entry.
  • Maintain physical distancing of 1.5m.
  • Please keep your stay brief (time limit of 1 hour).
  • You will need to sign in upon entry to allow us to keep track of numbers and for COVID contact tracing if needed*.

*NB: We will destroy these records after 28 days and will not use your personal information for any other purpose.

Services available:

  • Browse the collection and borrow items using the self-checkout kiosks.
  • Collect your reserved items.
  • Return items using the internal and external return chutes.
  • Use the free library Wi-Fi.
  • Public Computers (one hour time limit), printing and photocopying.
  • Room hire at Kilmore and Wallan (restricted numbers for group bookings).

Services unavailable for now:

  • Face to face library programs and events. We will continue to provide our online activities.

Printing Service

Need something printed? We are now running a Print and Collect printing service to help you get your documents printed quickly and easily.

Access our Print and Collect printing service in 3 easy steps:

  1. Email your printing request to libraries@mitchellshire.vic.gov.au with your printing requirements and let us know which local branch you would like to collect from. Please ensure you include a phone number for us to contact you. Attachments should be no more than 15MB – if you're unsure about anything, call us to discuss.
  2. Wait for one of our team members to contact you about payment.
  3. Go to the library and pick up your printing (the printing can be posted on request).

Further details:

Emails will be deleted after 72 hours if we are unable to contact sender.

Unless we are notified otherwise, any printing that is not collected when arranged will be destroyed within 72 hours.
