About This Site

Design Your Library is Australia’s first directory of library building projects. Its purpose is to help library managers, coordinators and planners create the libraries of tomorrow.


The project is supported by the State Library of Victoria, the Public Libraries of Victoria Network and Eastern Regional Libraries. It’s  part of the Shared Leadership 2015 project: Creating Libraries; Fostering Communities – A Showcase of Victorian Public Libraries.
