This new digital search and borrowing system offers the library services customers expect and need, particularly in our large shire, where travelling to a library isn't always an option.

Access to variety of books

Now, you can choose from more than 4000 eBooks, eAudiobooks or digital magazines for all ages and interests - even if you aren't physically able to visit your local library - or place a hold on physical books, magazines and other resources for the next time you can visit a branch.

New self-checkout scanners at Bairnsdale Library and Lakes Entrance Service Centre are easy to use and save time, while the Libraries Victoria App lets you use your phone as a library card and puts our catalogue and online resources in your pocket.

Digital availability

Digital titles are now available via:

  • BorrowBox and Axis 360, which offers your favourite Australian authors, international bestsellers and much more
  • uLibrary offers more than 300 titles for simultaneous download, which means you'll never need to wait for someone else to finish reading for you to get your hands on a title
  • Libby your online eMagazine library, with over 1000 magazines available, including Better Homes and Gardens, New Idea and Wheels
  • Story Box Library gives you access to over 800 popular and classic children's stories, all read by the best storytellers

And we still offer click and collect for books and other items. Sign into your App and use it as your library card. You can even add other family members to the App and manage their accounts in one place!
