Overview

Pyrenees Shire Council is home to two resource centres; one in Avoca and the other in Beaufort.

These resource centres are home to Pyrenees Libraries, information for tourists, free wi-fi, conference room hire and computer access.

Pyrenees Libraries

Pyrenees Libraries are part of the Central Highlands Libraries group, which contains a very large catalogue of books, magazines, DVDs and audio books. Membership of the library is free, and your membership allows access to all of the Central Highlands Libraries across the region.

Each library has a self-serve station for you to check out your own books, or you can take up the help of one of our friendly staff members who can issue your resources.

Feel free to order items from the catalogue and they'll be delivered to your library of choice. Access the catalogue via the Central Highlands Libraries page.

Please note: at times Mobile Library services may be cancelled to due to Extreme and Catastrophic Weather conditions. Please check social media, website for updates or call 1300 797 363.
