Darebin Libraries and Learning Strategy 2020-24

The draft Darebin Libraries and Learning Strategy 2020-24 is the result of merging two important Council strategies: the Darebin Libraries Strategy and the Lifelong Learning Strategy.

During the planning and community engagement phases of these two strategies, it became clear there were significant overlaps. Both strategies addressed the lifelong learning needs of our community, barriers to participation and how Council can help the community access lifelong learning opportunities.

Thank you to members of both the Lifelong Learning Strategy Reference Group and the Darebin Libraries Strategy Implementation Reference Group and everyone who participated in the consultation activities and provided their feedback. We heard from over 4,375 community members and community organisation representatives, including those who don't currently use our libraries.

Your feedback has been incredibly valuable as we shape Darebin Libraries' future direction. You can view a summary of the consultation findings from the community engagement activities so far in the document library on the right of this page.
