If you haven't visited your local library lately, you're missing out on a treasure trove of experiences and opportunities. Over the years, our libraries have evolved into vibrant community hubs that offer more than just books.

Here are some things you can discover at Mornington Peninsula Libraries, and best of all, they're 100% free with your library membership!

  2. Digital resources –our collection includes eBooks, audiobooks, movies, music, games, and online databases. You can access research materials, read popular Australian newspapers, enhance your children's literacy with eBooks, and grow your professional skills with online courses.
  3. Community programs –we offer a range of programs, including Yack n Yarn, Chatty Café, Story Dogs, gardening clubs, after-school programs and so much more. These programs allow you to share your voice, meet like-minded individuals and build connections that make a difference.
  4. Children programs –in today's digital age, where screens often dominate our lives, libraries serve as an oasis for young minds. Nurture your child's love for reading and knowledge with our Storytime and STEM programs, which offer the perfect blend of entertainment and education.
  5. Home Library Service –if you can't visit our libraries due to frailty, illness or a disability, Our Home Library Service may be the answer.
