Libraries Change Lives

Victorian public libraries change lives by offering communities a place to learn, create and belong.

Libraries are evolving Collections are more accessible because they’re physical, digital and mobile. They include books, journals, newspapers and magazine, music and movies, tablets and laptops.But collections are just part of the story…..

Libraries are Online classrooms | Playgroups | Social clubs | Art galleries | Theatres | Streaming services | Recording  studios | Study desks | Boardrooms | Lecture halls | Lounge rooms | Science labs

Libraries deliver essential services to all Victorians No other institution offers the same safe and inclusive public spaces with free and equal life-changing access to art, ideas, education and social engagement.
