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

Libraries Change Lives is a conversation about the value and impact of Victoria’s public libraries, and the role they play in building literate, productive and engaged communities.

Today’s libraries provide a breadth of free, essential services that are highly valued by their communities, and often life changing. Beyond their traditional role of housing collections, libraries provide lifelong opportunities through the delivery of education and creative programs, access to technology and information, accessible community spaces and tailored staff expertise.
