BECAUSE TRANSFORMATION IS ESSENTIAL TO THE COMMUNITIES WE SERVE.
Libraries are a smart investment, transforming lives and communities and passionately advocating for lifelong learning. Libraries Transform, the Australian Library and Information Association’s public awareness campaign, is spreading the word about the impact libraries and librarians make every day—join us for free tools and resources to advocate for the value of librarianship.
The Libraries Transform campaign is designed to increase public awareness of the value, impact and services provided by libraries and library professionals.
We encourage you to use the custom toolkit of resources for marketing, advocacy, outreach activities and more.
This campaign was originally created and developed by the American Library Association and we thank them for their permission to use and adapt it for Australian public libraries.
YOU CAN RECHARGE YOUR PHONE AND YOUR BRAIN.
Did you know that Australians made 56 million physical visits, enjoyed nearly 5 million hours of internet and wifi access and booked over half a million hours in meeting spaces in public libraries from 2021 - 2022?
DISCOVERY IS ALWAYS ON THE MENU.
Librarians can help you find your “aha!” moment, whether you’re researching in the stacks, innovating in a makerspace or embracing creativity in a library-run program.
AGE IS NO BARRIER.
Our public libraries are for everyone in the community. They run programs aimed at people in all stages of life and cover topics ranging from early literacy to aged care reform.
INFORMED CITIZENS EQUAL A BETTER FUTURE.
Libraries are essential for equipping people in the community with accurate information and skills so they can learn, reflect upon and make decisions about the future.
THEY CLOSE THE DIGITAL DIVIDE.
THEY WELCOME ANYONE FROM ANYWHERE.
Did you know that many public libraries around Australia are the first ports of call for people experiencing domestic violence or finding a safe space during an emergency?
