About Us

Public Libraries Victoria is passionate about environmental sustainability as well as responsible interaction with our planet to maintain its natural resources. Public libraries support their communities in all facets of wellbeing, including environmental sustainability. The importance of public libraries is reflected in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. It is also demonstrated in the lived experience of millions of Victorians who use their local services – Libraries Change Lives!

Acknowledgment of Country:

Victoria’s Public Library Network operates from many different locations throughout Victoria. Across these locations, we acknowledge the traditional lands of all the Victorian Aboriginal Clans and celebrate their enduring connections to Country, knowledge and stories. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging, and we acknowledge their sustained and ongoing custodianship, knowledge, management and protection of their land, water, and animals.
