Great News! Holds can now be placed on items outside our library service.  

Visit the catalogue and reserve your items. We will let you know when they arrive and organise a pick up time.


COVID-19 Library Closure 16 September until further notice. 

Unfortunately, due to the Victorian Government Stage Three restrictions, the Stawell and St Arnaud Libraries will continue to be closed to public access. 

Services that will remain: 

Borrowing: Click and Collect - call, email, or place holds on items for scheduled contactless collection in the foyer of the library. 

Weeded stock: Trolleys will be placed outside the front doors for the community to take weeded stock. (These items are not required to be returned.)

Home Library: We will provide a home library service for those who cannot get to the library. Items will be delivered/collected to a designated contactless location - e.g. front door.  

Printing: We will continue to provide a contactless printing service. Documents will be left for scheduled pick up. EFTPOS is preferred in Stawell or correct change for both Stawell and St Arnaud.

Libraries: So much more than books.                   

We offer a welcoming space for study, learning, leisure and lounging, a place to connect or simply browse and borrow.

Northern Grampians Libraries is a part of the Central Highlands Library network, which means our members have access to a collection of over 3 million items - books, movies, music, audiobooks, newspapers and magazines collections from 27 library services throughout Libraries Victoria.
