Libraries Change Lives

The Libraries Change Lives campaign is an initiative of State Library Victoria and Public Libraries Victoria Network and aims to demonstrate how important libraries are in communities.

How can you be involved?

Postcard campaign

You can fill in a Libraries Change Lives postcard, available at all library branches. The postcards are a simple way for community members to express why funding library services matters to you. Postcards will be collected and displayed at Parliament House in June.

Tell us your story

If you have a story about how a library has changed your life, contact us. We want to hear about it. You can visit your local library or email Stories will be added to our website (see below) and published on our Facebook page.


Campaign Launch

Our campaign was launched on Thursday 2 May 2019 at Traralgon Library with guest speakers, the Deputy Mayor, Cr Darren Howe, author and journalist, Sue Smethurst and YA author, Scot Gardner.
