Get involved

Our donors, sponsors and volunteers all play an essential role in supporting the Library.

Their generous contributions help us to build and protect our collection, present inspiring exhibitions and programs, and provide vital services for all Victorians.

We invite you to get involved, too.

Become a Friend of the Library, volunteer, donate, join our corporate membership program or sponsor us – and make a real difference to your library.
