Shaping your library's future

Wondering where to next for libraries in our region? We want to hear from you! We are developing our Library Plan 2021–2025 and we want to know your ideas.

To help in the development of the Plan, we are keen to hear from people in our communities. We’d like you to tell us:

  • How can one of the best library services in Victoria be even better?
  • What is needed to make sure you get the most out of your library service over the next four years?

Your ideas will help shape the Plan, and the future direction of library services in this region.

 How you can have your say

  1. Survey

We are inviting members of the public to complete a short survey. This survey should take no longer than a few minutes to complete, and you can go into the draw to win great prizes! The survey will be open from Friday 5 March until Friday 16 April 2021. Complete the survey (link)

Complete the Survey

  1. Community consultation opportunities

Face-to-face community consultation sessions will be held during April, allowing you share your ideas with us directly.

To stay up to date with this project, complete the survey and to sign up for email updates, visit our Have Your Say page.
