Coronavirus Update


The Victorian Government has announced that Hume City and the rest of metropolitan Melbourne will return to Stage 3 Stay at Home restrictions from 11.59pm today, Wednesday, 8 July 2020.

This means that we will now also need to temporarily close Sunbury Library. 

Residents in these areas are only able to leave their homes for four reasons: shopping for food and supplies, care and caregiving, exercise, and work or study – if you can’t do it from home. The restrictions will be in place for six weeks. 

While all libraries will be closed during this time, we are still going to be able to get books to our members through the Hume Library Express contact-free delivery program, we’ll also still be offering all our online storytimes and activities.

Keeping our communities safe

The latest restrictions are a timely reminder for all of us that nobody in our community is immune from COVID-19.

It doesn’t matter where you live or what your background is – we’re all at risk from contracting coronavirus.

If you haven’t already, we urge you to do your part and get tested – even if you have mild symptoms, or no symptoms at all. 

Testing is free for everyone and there are a number of testing sites located in Hume City and surrounding suburbs. Visit the Getting tested for coronavirus (COVID-19) website for information on a COVID-19 testing site near you.

For the latest information visit or call the coronavirus hotline on 1800 675 398.
