Yarra Libraries App for AppleOpening Hours Review

Yarra Libraries is looking into revised opening hours for its branches, aimed at increasing access for all.
This follows a review of library opening hours across Yarra earlier this year. The review examined current visit and loan levels and benchmarked against six other library services within metropolitan Melbourne.
As a result, two new cost-neutral options for opening hours for our branches are available for the community to decide on. Have your say by participating in our online survey.
