State Library Victoria is temporarily closed until further notice and all Library programs are cancelled or postponed until at least 13 April 2020.

Full refunds will be issued and the Library will be in touch with ticket holders over the coming weeks. This does not affect events by Showtime Event Group.

This decision was not taken lightly and is a preventative step to support the health and wellbeing of staff and volunteers and help stem the spread of COVID-19 in the Victorian community.
