Victoria Government seeks more community tourists by developing its libraries

Published on : Wednesday, December 11, 2019

The Andrews Labor Government is investing in Victoria’s local libraries, announcing funding for better facilities and services at 12 libraries across the state. The Minister for Local Government Adem Somyurek and the Member for Bayswater Jackson Taylor today announced the councils that will receive funding for their library projects, including $450,000 towards Knox City Council’s Knox Central Library redevelopment.

 

 

The Labor Government’s $4.1 million Living Libraries Infrastructure Program helps Victorian councils and regional library corporations upgrade and adapt to meet the needs of changing and growing communities.

 

 

 

More than nine million different items are borrowed from Victorian libraries every year and they provide a vital service for communities across the state, with 2.2 million members across 277 permanent and 30 mobile libraries.

 

 

In August, the Government announced $44.7 million in funding to support public libraries across Victoria to buy new books and e-resources, and deliver programs including story time for children and outreach services.

 

 

Public libraries also benefit from the Premiers’ Reading Challenge Book Fund, which provides an annual allocation for books and materials to support the Premiers’ Reading Challenge.
