New interlibrary loan charge

Moonee Valley Libraries provides access to a range of materials through its 5 branch libraries for our members. If you cannot find a book in our catalogue, you can request an interlibrary loan from another library (see here for conditions). You can do this through the LibraryLink Victoria (LLV) service.

As of 10 July 2017, a booking fee will apply to all new iInterlibrary loan requests. This small charge will assist us to continue providing this valued service. 

The booking fee will be $1 for Centrelink concession card holders and $2 for all others, plus the fee charged by the library service supplying the item (where applicable). 

 


 

Kanopy: free film streaming for library members

Kanopy 

Kanopy is a film streaming service with over 26,000 movies, documentaries and television series. Here's how it works:

  • To access content, members need to sign up and then add their library card number and PIN.
  • You can use any device with a web browser to stream content including gaming consoles, tablets, computers or smart TVs.
  • You will receive 10 view credits for the month and on the 1st of the month, they will be reset to 10. Credits do not carry over to the next month.
  • Some titles are bundled; 1 bundle uses 1 credit but may actually be 3 or 4 related films.
  • Members have 3 days to watch a film or 1 bundle. Be sure it is what you want to watch, once you click play it will count as a credit.
  • You can create your own watch lists and even give the film a rating.
  • Apps for Apple and Android devices will be released in the future.

There is new content added every month and you will automatically get access to it. So follow the link to Kanopy or find it under "music and film" in our online resources page.


KOGO: Knit One, Give One

Knit one, give one 

Knit One Give One, KOGO, is a not for profit organisation supplying handmade garments to support people experiencing hardship. Volunteers can make a whole range of items including scarves, beanies, blankets, toys and children’s and babies’ clothing. Finished items are distributed to various community partners throughout Australia including the Salvation Army, Sacred Heart Mission, Mirabel Foundation and Open Family Australia.

Moonee Valley Libraries invites members of the community to share some warmth throughout 2017 and knit, crochet or sew for KOGO. We will be forwarding on donations throughout the year. Patterns are available on the KOGO website or ask staff for assistance.

Completed items or blanket squares may be dropped off at any of our library branches.
