Kate Torney, Chief Executive Officer, State Library of Victoria

Keynote address
Thursday 1 September 2016, 4:00pm - 5:00pm


Libraries are among the last community orientated, not-for-profit public spaces and are powerful community enablers.  Equally the community is a critical resource to inform and support library growth and evolution into the future. What can we learn from our communities and what can we do to support this vital matrix.
