MCWH Multilingual Library

Welcome to the library

The MCWH Library is located at our MCWH office in Collingwood, Melbourne/Naarm.

It is specialist library of women’s health resources made for migrant and refugee communities in languages other than English or easy to read English.

Our library is a welcoming place where women can connect and build life long knowledge and skills for their health and wellbeing.

Currently MCWH staff are working in a hybrid model, which means our library is open by appointment only, during business hours Monday to Friday. For more information please contact
