COVID-19 Update:

Officially under eased restrictions, from 11.59pm 31 May 2020, libraries are permitted to open, with no more than 20 people allowed in each separate space, subject to the four square metre rule, in addition to those required to operate the facility.

While this change enables libraries to open their doors from 1 June, due to the different conditions and challenges affecting individual library services, your library will re-open in a way that is safe for you, your community and library staff.

To see how your library is re-opening check  your local library’s website 


Who we are…

Public Libraries Victoria (PLV), is the peak body for public libraries in Victoria. We represent all library services across the state and work together to make our libraries the best they can be. 

Every community is a little bit different, but our libraries have many things in common. By sharing our resources, combining our buying power and showing how libraries change lives, we have more to invest back into the services our library members value so much.  

Here you can find information about our organisation, as well as information about libraries throughout Victoria – what we do, how we do it and how you can get involved. 

PLV is led by an Executive Committee. Meet the team!

PLV supports a number of Special Interest Groups (SIGs), for more information click here.
