In 2012 the State Library of Victoria commenced a strategic project to address the critical question: What is a public library in 2030? The purpose of this project was to develop a strategic framework to inform, influence and guide the future strategic direction, priorities and planning for Victorian public libraries. Such a framework would underpin a cohesive approach to the future, ensuring that what public libraries do in the short term is consistent with where they are headed in the long term. By focusing on a longer term planning timeframe, this strategic framework would ensure the ongoing relevance of public libraries to the future wants and needs of their communities.
