Flemington Library is getting a refresh!
The first floor of the Flemington Library is undergoing renovation in 2023. This redevelopment project, supported by the State Government's Living Libraries Infrastructure Program, will give more space to the community to support learning, creative programs and large community events.
→ The library at Racecourse Road will be closed from January 16 2023.
→ Our services are continuing from at a pop-up library at 15 Ascot Vale Road, Flemington - open now!
Services available at the temporary location include:
- loaning and returning of library materials;
- collection of reservations;
- newspapers and magazines,
- free computer access;
- photocopying and scanning;
- staff assistance.
Smaller library programs will be held in-house, with larger programs including Storytimes continuing at the nearby Crown Street Stables.
