Thanks to everyone who shared their ideas and feedback on the future of libraries by:

A What We Heard Report is now available summarising the feedback we received via all channels.

Your contributions, ideas and feedback will help us write, refine and finalise the Libraries ACT: Imagine 2030 Strategy which we look forward to sharing with you in 2023.

We are looking at how to create libraries as places that meet changing community needs. Libraries have long been more than physical books but a place of learning, inspiration, digital connection and social interaction. Since the beginning of 2020 with the COVID outbreak, Libraries ACT has responded to the rapid changes in community needs by evolving its digital services to meet increased demand. Moving into the future, Libraries ACT want to explore how the community might change and how they might do things differently to remain relevant and viable to meet those changing needs.

Bring different perspectives together through a co-design process, so we can develop a meaningful plan for the future of libraries in the ACT.
