Four major exhibitions will bring the collection to life in 2023, including an innovative exploration of our Photo Collection and new interpretations of influential Hebrew Manuscripts.


A compelling program featuring local writers, artists and creatives is on the slate, including some of Victoria’s top cultural events.


We're saving a special seat for Library members at our exclusive events and continuing to nurture the next wave of entrepreneurs through StartSpace.


Our vast collection is accessible through our online catalogue, insightful blogs, articles, videos and a brand-new podcast series.
