State Library Victoria is Australia’s oldest and busiest public library. It is a vibrant and vital cultural centre for all Victorians to discover new worlds, learn, create and connect with their community. As part of the Library’s commitment to continue to be a library for all, the Vision 2020 redevelopment project will see the refurbishment of the Library’s incomparable heritage spaces, creation of innovative new spaces for children and teenagers, and the reinvention of our services as we embrace new technologies and promote digital literacy and creativity for all Victorians.

Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
