Libraries

Due to the recent direction from the State Government we are notifying our members and the general public that all four branches of the Shire of Harvey Libraries are closed until further notice.

The Shire of Harvey Libraries is a hub for our community and while our libraries can’t be opened to the public at this time, we are offering a range of different services to you.
