Tomorrow’s Library report tells a compelling story03 Dec 2012
A new report that makes recommendations for the future of Victoria’s public libraries was launched on Monday 3 December 2012.
Chair of MAC, David Morris MP, said the recommendations reflect the views of the sector and the community, following an extensive consultation that took place as part of the review.
“The report encapsulates the feedback received during the consultation process, which included 1,500 contributions from people and the organisations who are passionate about libraries,” he said.
Minister for Local Government Jeanette Powell MP, who was presented with the report during the launch, said the response to the consultation proved that Victorians value the services and facilities offered at libraries.
“While the Victorian Government considers the best ways to ensure that local libraries can meet the growing and changing needs of out communities it is important that everyone has an opportunity to tell their library story or share their ideas,” Mrs Powell said.
The second stage of Tomorrow’s Library will start in early 2013 and will review costs and prioritisation of library projects and programs.
