Library Plan 2023-25

Published on 19 July 2023


On Tuesday 18 July 2023, Council endorsed the Library Plan 2023-25.

Community feedback is at the heart of the Library Plan 2023-25. Almost 4,000 comments were received from more than 1,300 people during October and November 2022. Community members were able to engage through our library branches, online and at a number of pop-up information sessions around the City.

The Library Plan 2023-25 is designed to achieve our vision to be welcoming, progressive libraries that inspire connection and learning while supporting Council's vision to be an inclusive, flourishing, progressive city that cares for both its residents and its environment. To deliver on this commitment, the Plan is guided by four strategic themes:

  • Safe and welcoming spaces: our libraries are welcoming, uplifting and promote access and inclusion. Our spaces are havens for our diverse communities and encourage connection, learning and recreation.
  • Learning and engagement: our service anticipates community needs, building literacy and social connection, supporting a thriving community.
  • Discovery and creativity: we provide experiences that inspire visitors to discover, create and explore. Our diverse communities see themselves reflected in our collection, services and programs.
  • Future-ready workplace: our staff have the skills, expertise and resources to provide a progressive, responsive and industry leading library service.
