The Queenscliff Library is housed in a beautiful heritage building. Queenscliff has had some form of library service since 1856. In the mid 1880s, public subscription raised £900 towards the cost of our current building, designed by Geelong architect Joseph Watts. Dr David Williams, chairman of the trustees, laid the foundation stone on 23 June 1887 and the building was completed in 1888. The building was extended in 1974/75 and renovated under a Living Libraries grant in 2002. In 1894, the library reportedly contained nearly 2,000 volumes – currently, we have about 14,700 items.

Ron Tandberg was a renowned artist and political cartoonist who won 11 Walkley Awards during his 45-year career at The Age newspaper. Sadly Ron passed away in January this year aged 74, following a short illness. A resident of Queenscliff since 1996, Ron took great pleasure in the environment there. He enjoyed the abundant birdlife, pier, boats in the bay and swimming almost daily at the beach; as well as the many conversations with the people he met while out on his regular walks. Celebrate the late Ron Tandberg’s famed artwork, as part of the Borough of Queenscliffe’s Artists’ Walk. The Walk highlights the works of celebrated artists and photographers who are associated with the Queenscliff and Point Lonsdale region.
The Queenscliff Library will host an exhibition of Ron’s artwork, including a series of short videos of Ron discussing the creation of his famous caricatures.
