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.

The Autumn Murders is the third novel in the ‘Murders’ series of historical crime novels set in Melbourne in 1944. The localized prejudices, National Socialist sympathisers and sectarian tensions are eerily familiar. Robert Gott is the award winning author of 97 books both fiction and non-fiction. He will be discussing historical fiction and its timelessness with fellow author Jock Serong.
