Libraries

Click & Collect Service

All existing Hindmarsh Shire Libraries members and those new to our service, will be able to opt-in to the click & collect service. Library membership is available online. You can also use your previous card to place holds online. Even if you are not a member yet, call us 5391 4444 and we can organise your new library membership over the phone.

There are three ways you can organise your click and collect:

  1. Submit a request using our online form. Fill in the fields, specify a genre or age (such as picture books, non-fiction etc.) and our team will handpick you items for you.
     
  2. Place reservations on available items using the online catalogue and select your usual branch for pick up location.
     
  3. Phone your local library branch where you will be able to chat to the librarian about what you like and they can make a selection on your behalf. Please have your library card barcode number ready when you call.

Items will be available at these designated times.

Jeparit             Monday from 2-4pm.

Dimboola         Tuesdays 2-4pm.

Nhill                 Thursdays 2-4pm.

Rainbow           Fridays 2-4pm.

Please nominate a time for collection during these times. Please be aware that periods of high demand may affect pick up times - we appreciate your patience.

Strict hygiene procedures are in place to protect our staff, library members and the wider community. All physical collections/items (books, DVDs, CDs, Audiobooks) will undergo a 72 hour quarantine on return.

COVID-19 COMMUNITY UPDATE

As of 11:59pm Wednesday 16 September 2020, Regional Victoria will move into the third step of the COVID-19 Roadmap to Recovery. Read below for an update on the changes to Council’s services.

Unfortunately we are unable to open our libraries, so libraries and customer service centres will remain closed, except that the Nhill office will now be open from 10am to Midday and 2pm to 4pm Monday to Friday without the need to make an appointment, although appointments are encouraged. Only click and collect services will be available at our libraries, for more information on this, click here.

Our parks, playgrounds and skate parks will all be open as of today and people are able to gather (up to 10 people) outdoors.

Halls and the cinema will remain closed as under the third step indoor venues are to be closed.
