Melbourne Library Service 2021 will provide the strategic direction for City of Melbourne library service over the next five years.

From research and a review of our current library service we developed a range of key focus areas that libraries will be working in. These include:

  • Community space
  • Collections
  • Capital city
  • Programs and events
  • Future focused
  • Leaning and knowledge

We consulted with the community on these six focus areas in mid 2016. Feedback received will inform our draft strategy, which is on hold until further notice.
