The word library in black capital letters against a pale grey wall with a yellow awning in the background

The Stella Prize recently launched a new online series of posts in which librarians reflect on the personal, social and political importance of libraries to Australian society.

The interviewees, who come from all around Australia, include Jenny Mustey, Library Services Manager at Campaspe Library and PLV Executive Committee member, Jane Cowell, CEO of Yarra Plenty Regional Libraries, Siobhan Dennis, Acquisitions Libraries at the Vision Australia Library, and Connor Borchard-Burns, Library Officer at Yarra Libraries.

You can read the posts by following these links:
