Redmond Barry Reading Room

The Library is bursting with stories. If you placed all of our physical items (not to mention digital ones) side by side, they would almost stretch from Swanston Street to Ballarat. That’s more than 90 kilometres of stories.

More than a year ago, we asked you to help us shape the Library’s future story. From people who use the Library to people who don’t, community groups and primary schools, we spoke with Victorians from across the state to help us understand what was important.

Your feedback has led to some exciting new physical and digital changes that you’ll start to see pop up inside the Library and online over the next few months.

La Trobe Reading Room

As Victoria’s official storykeeper, we want to make it easier for you to find, share, and create your own stories. We’re launching a new website in the coming weeks that will be easier to navigate and explore. We’re also making a number of changes to the foyer and other spaces throughout the Library to simplify your visit.

So whether you’re looking for a desk to work at, an exhibition to explore, or a book to take you far, far away, we want to make it easier for you to discover our stories and create your own.

More details coming soon…
