School holidays can get expensive, but not when you’re signed up to the Frankston City Libraries School Holiday eNews and you’re the first in line to book for their free school holiday program.
Frankston City Libraries delivers an array of school holiday activities with a mixture of both in-person and virtual events and caters for a broad age group. Their school holiday program is traditionally booked out weeks in advance.
From special Storytime and movie sessions, to science shows, arts and crafts, and author meet-and-greets, Frankston City Libraries is your one-stop-shop for school holiday fun and frivolity.
Not only does Frankston City Libraries have a great school holiday program, but they’re also late fine free!
“If you haven’t visited your local library in a while, now is the time with Frankston City Libraries removing late fines and offering an extensive program of events and activities,” said Frankston City Libraries Manager, Tammy Beauchamp.
“If you thought you may have had a library late fine, we’ve wiped them all and we’d love to see you in one of our libraries soon.
“We have a huge range of comics, graphic novels, junior fiction and young adult books in the collection, as well as eBook and eAudiobooks on your phone or device via our library apps, BorrowBox and Libby. There’s no need to be paying for your audiobooks and eBooks.
“We also have movie and music streaming services free with your library membership.”

So much has changed in libraries and it might be time to pop in and say hello to the team. They’ve also got the latest popular releases in a special one week loan collection called Read Now (lt’s ok, you can renew your book twice if you don’t finish it within the week).
Frankston, Carrum Downs and Seaford libraries all have free Wi-Fi, public computers and study spaces. If you have someone in your life studying, make sure you check out Studiosity, the library’s online 24/7 tutor. The Studiosity tutoring service caters for Grade 3 right up to first year post-graduate university, and it’s free with your Frankston City Libraries membership.
Studiosity can also assist with job seeking. The platform allows you to upload the job advertisement along with your resume and cover letter, and Studiosity’s specialists will help you to tailor your application to the job advertisement.
Frankston Library is open until 7pm weeknights and Carrum Downs is now open until 10pm every Thursday night, thanks to the Libraries After Dark program.
Libraries continue to work closely with vulnerable people in our community and if you have someone who can no longer visit their library, Frankston City Libraries offers a Home Library Service.
